What we're looking for
As much as we’re looking for the right kind of people to deliver the award winning service that our customers expect, it’s equally important we fit your criteria as well. Are you original and always on? Do you have a passion for life and take pride in your work?
Here at first direct, our values are passion, pride, playful, always on, family and original. We live and breathe them everyday; they’re what make our people tick. Although we have a diverse workforce where individuality is embraced, each member of our family share our values and have certain traits that make them, well, first direct.
We’ve put together a culture quiz based on our values to help you decide if first direct has the potential to be your employer of choice. It’s just for fun, so we won’t judge you on the outcome and your score will not form part of the recruitment process. To show you our playful side, we’ve included some games too. Go on, give it a try.
It depends on the conviction. It's best to be open and honest with us at interview and tell us about any unspent convictions, including motor convictions. A criminal record check is required if you are successful at interview. There is no requirement to disclose spent convictions.
Credit checks at first direct
If you fail your credit check it means we won't be able to offer you a job at this moment in time. That's not to say we won't be able to offer you one in the future though, once you've sorted it all out.
Previous first direct or HSBC employees
It's always great to hear people want to come back to the first direct/HSBC family. Whether you can apply again depends on your reason for leaving so why not give us a call to discuss in more detail.
