East Midlands Chamber, UK Chamber of the Year, is a well-respected and award winning organisation that aims to enhance businesses and communities in Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire. With more than 4,000 members, we have established a reputation as the voice of the region's economy.
Found a great role? It’s easy to work for us. Simply follow the three steps below. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
Send your CV and a covering letter detailing why you believe that you will add value to the role and the Chamber to email@example.com with the subject line as the vacancy reference, EMC28.
Alternatively, post your application to: FAO HR department, East Midlands Chamber, Commerce House, Millennium Way, Dunston Road, Chesterfield, S41 8ND
Applications that do not include both a CV and covering letter will not be considered.
If you’re successful at this stage, you will be invited for an interview. If you’re unsuccessful, the Chamber’s HR team will let you know by email.
First, you’ll be invited to interview onsite at our Nottingham office within 10 days of the advert closure. If your interview goes well, you may be invited to attend a second interview or offered the role. Some interviews might require you to compile some research or to prepare a presentation. At the end of the interview, the interviewer will confirm the timeline for next steps.
Interviews usually last around an hour with a mix of competency based interview questions, and in some cases, we might ask you to carry out some practical exercises.
Decisions will be made at each stage of the process, as we score applicants against the role criteria. If you’re successful, we will contact you to make an offer. This will be followed up in writing and a contract will be sent to you once a start date is confirmed. You will receive information on your induction and what you will do on your first day. If you have any questions, please just get in touch.
If you’re unsuccessful, we will either write to you or contact you by telephone, and if you’ve attended an interview we’re more than happy to provide feedback. You’re welcome to apply again for another role in the future.
All suitably qualified individuals are encouraged to apply for vacancies, and they will be considered solely based on merit regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital status, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation. The business is dedicated to retaining talent and therefore it may decide to prioritise and support internal applicants during recruitment exercises. Applicants are required to disclose any unspent convictions or cautions and company director disqualifications in their covering letter. Any reasonable adjustments needed to support applicants should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
