Our recruitment experience

The perfect fit. We’re big on that here at Clarks. But not just when it comes to our shoes. We apply the same thinking, care and consideration to our jobs too. After all, you need to be right for us and, just as importantly, we need to be right for you. So how does it all work? What are the processes involved? The first thing to say is that we don’t do one-size-fits-all here. We tailor the recruitment process to the job.

Recruitment and selection processes

Like everything we do, we’ve worked really hard to make sure that the recruitment and selection process is fair and consistent. We recruit on merit alone, on your ability to do the job.

Equal opportunities

We’re fair, honest and open - and at every stage of recruitment and selection. Short-listing, interviewing and selection is always carried out without regard to age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

A positive recruitment experience

Whether it’s buying a pair of shoes or applying for a new job, we want everyone to have a brilliant Clarks experience. We take time to carefully consider all recruitment decisions and make sure that we’re making the right hire for us as a business - and that it’s the right move for you too.

If you’re at application or selection stage, you’ll find the links on the left useful. If you have any questions about our recruitment and selection process, please take a look at our FAQs page

Here at Clarks, we use a variety of selection methods, but mostly interviews and, occasionally, assessment centres and testing. Again, it’s what right for that particular job. To give you an idea of what to expect, there’s more information about them in this section.
