Recruitment process

The interview process needn’t be daunting at Infectious Media. Here’s what to expect when you apply for a job with us:

    1. For the roles that require you to know your way around data or spreadsheets, entry level applicants will be asked to complete a short maths test. 
    2. ‘Meet and greet’ interview. This is an opportunity for you to talk through your experience and your career goals. We’ll also take the chance to tell you all about the role and the culture here at Infectious Media. 
    3. Second interview. Here we like to delve down a bit further. All candidates, whether you’re interviewing for an entry level role, or senior position will be given a task. The task will vary depending on the nature of the role – it could be analysing data, presenting your thoughts on the future of advertising, or a technical task.

Increase your chances of success with these key tips:

  • We’re pretty casual over here. So swap that suit and tie for something that more reflects who you are.

  • Research, research, research. What we do isn’t always the most straightforward. Take some time to figure out what our business does, and get some understanding of how it works.

  • Show some passion! Come armed with some questions about the business, the industry and your role within it.
