How to apply

Our placement programme is now closed.

What to expect during the assessment process

We split assessments for our work placement programme into four stages. Each is an opportunity for Frontier to understand ‘what makes you tick’ and for you to get to know more about Frontier. The stages are:

CV and application Form: The first step gives us important information about your experience and helps us understand why you want to work at Frontier.

Online ability tests: We are interested in how you work and your potential to do specific tasks, therefore we ask you to complete three online ability tests. These help us to match the right people to the right jobs by looking at aspects of your ability, such as verbal and numerical reasoning. You can read more about these types of tests here

Telephone Interview: This 20-30 minute discussion with a member of our recruitment team is an opportunity for us to understand more about why you have applied for the role and what draws you to working for Frontier.

Assessment Centre: This is the final formal stage of recruitment. It consists of a full day at Frontier, where you will take part in a number of different exercises coordinated by our recruitment team. As well as assessment, this is a great opportunity for you to meet some of Frontier’s people and learn a little more about what it’s like to join us on a work placement. Previous candidates have told us that the day is challenging but very enjoyable and informative.

Good luck!
