Graduate recruitment process & FAQ’s

So you think you’ve got what it takes to be a Celsius graduate? Do you have the drive and determination that our clients are looking for?

To become a Celsius graduate, you will pass through our comprehensive graduate recruitment process. When we receive your CV we will give you a call, ask you some questions; basically find out more about you, your ambitions and career objectives. If you have the career plans and personality that we are looking for, we will invite you to one of our Celsius Graduate Recruitment Days.

The Celsius process
Here’s what you can expect when you apply to be a Celsius graduate.

Step 1: CV evaluation
First of all, we will review your CV to check if you are a graduate and if so, when you graduated. We will also check your communication and written skills.

Step 2: Telephone interview
The next stage is for us to give you a call to ensure that you have effective verbal communication skills, the ability to listen and the energy and enthusiasm that we are looking for in our graduates. We also want to find out more about your career objectives and the type of role that you are looking for. We’re not concerned about your academic achievements, we want to know about you, your attitude and your approach to life.

Step 3: Graduate Recruitment Day
Provided that you pass through the first two stages successfully, we will invite you to attend one of our Celsius Graduate Recruitment Days.

Run by recent Celsius graduates, our recruitment days are designed to be challenging but they’re also fun and relaxed. We want to know if you are the sort of intelligent, dynamic, determined and hard-working graduate that we are looking for – a Celsius graduate.

Our aim is to identify whether you have the basic competencies and skills that will one day make you a future trailblazer in the world of sales. We will use a number of different methods including the following:

• Introductions
• Written tests
• Group activities
• Debates
• Presentations
• Role play scenarios
• Question and answer sessions

All of the recruitment day tasks are designed to assess your skills against our strict guidelines. The process provides us with a detailed view of your capabilities, motivations, how you deal with others and how you handle pressure.

Only those graduates that meet our strict criteria, pass the recruitment process to become Celsius Graduates.
