We’ve put together a list of the responses to questions we've been asked. If we’ve not provided the answer you need, please get in touch with us on careers@mottmac.com or contact us on Twitter at @MottMacLife.

Where can I search for jobs?

Our current vacancies are advertised on our website and the job description will tell you about the requirements for the job, such as necessary experience and qualifications you’ll need. You can start your search here.

If you're interested in our UK jobs, you can try our Candidate Assistant powered by IBM Watson. This is a new tool that you can use to match your CV to jobs and find out more information to common questions specific to the UK. Try our Candidate Assistant.

How do I use the search vacancies page?

Our search vacancies page features the full list of our available vacancies for you to search. You filter our jobs using a job title, keyword, or location to narrow down your search. You can further refine the results using the available filters including Country, Discipline, Contract Type and Work Pattern.

Do I have to apply online?

Yes, we ask that you apply online unless you are unable to do so. If you need information about our current vacancies in a different format, contact us and we’ll do our best to sort it out for you. You can contact our team about this on resonable.adjustments@mottmac.com.

Can I apply using a mobile device?

Yes, we’ve worked to integrate our careers site with Google Drive to create the optimal mobile application process. Please bear in mind that, whilst we take every precaution to ensure that the integrity of the data is kept secure, we cannot be held liable for the data being processed by Google Drive or any data breach caused by the data being routed via Google Drive. Your use of Google Drive is subject to your agreement to Google’s terms and conditions.

Can I apply for more than one vacancy?

Yes, although you should only apply to roles that match your skills and requirements. You can apply for a maximum of 25 vacancies within a 12-month period, so apply wisely!

Why do I have to set up an account?

We want to make sure your details are secure and your applications are trackable, so a registered account is a necessary. Your application details are saved for you to access later, you can view the status of all your applications, and it’s much easier for you to apply to other roles. You can request that your account is deleted from the Account Settings.

Can I set up job alerts?

You can save job alerts from within your candidate account. To start, you need to 'Search for Jobs'. Use the available filters and search options to filter the results. Then you can 'Save this search' to confirm how often you want to receive updates.

Why can't I login to my account?

Check that you have entered the correct email address and password. If you’ve forgotten your password you can use the ‘Forgot your password?’ link on the sign-in page, and make sure you have your security question answer. You’ll receive an email from us with guidance on resetting your password. If you still can’t log in please email careerpoint@mottmac.com. Please note that speculative CVs/applications sent to this email address will not be accepted.

Do you keep my details on file? If so, for what purpose?

Yes, we do keep your details. New vacancies arise every day, and our recruiters look to our database for past applicants who may be suitable for these new roles. We do also use certain information from applications for running reports, but we will never use your personal data for any purpose other than recruitment within the Mott MacDonald Group. You can read our recruitment privacy notice here.

What if I do not want my details held on your system?

We have a dedicated email address for all data removal requests, it is dataprivacy@mottmac.com. In your email, be sure to include your full name and the email address you used to apply so we can find your record quickly. Alternatively, you can log on to your account and request that your account is deleted from the Accoutn Settings.

You say that I will be considered for other positions but is this really true?

Yes! Our recruiters carry out searches on our database, and contact people about our current vacancies.

Can I contact the manager directly to discuss a vacancy?

Our recruiters will be your main point of contact throughout the process, and each job description will feature a recruiter contact for you to get in touch with if you have any questions about that role. If you have issues finding this information then please contact us on the website or on careers@mottmac.com.

I have not had an acknowledgement of my application, why?

All online applicants receive an automatic confirmation email. Be sure to check your spam/junk folders if you haven’t seen our email come through. You can also log into your account through our careers site to find details of all the applications we’ve had from you in the ‘Applications’ section. If the role you applied for isn’t showing, you will need to reapply.

How long will it take to hear about the outcome of my application?

We try to respond to all applications within 14 days of receiving them - however, this is not always possible. Please bear with us if it does take a little longer. You can review the status of your application at any time by logging into your account and clicking into the ‘Applications’ section.

Can I get feedback on my application?

Unfortunately, we can’t offer tailored feedback on individual applications every time. The main reasons for application declines are generally that your requirements (location, sector, start date) do not match our role(s), that the requirements of the role in terms of technical skills and knowledge were not met or demonstrated in your application, and sometimes we have to cancel positions.

If you attend an interview with us and would like feedback, a member of the recruitment or human resources team will be able to provide this when requested.

Why have you asked for my feedback?

We want to give people a positive experience by treating everyone with honesty, fairness, and respect. To monitor and track our progress, with anonymised data informing positive actions, we survey candidates throughout our recruitment process to check how we are performing in terms of your experience and to understand any opportunities for improvement.

I’ve been contacted by someone about working at Mott MacDonald and I think it’s a scam, what do I do?

We are aware of some fraudulent recruitment scams being conducted by individuals or organisations claiming to represent us. If you have any concerns, see suspicious job adverts or receive suspicious communications please email careers@mottmac.com. You can find out more about the signs here.

Does Mott MacDonald use social media as part of the screening/selection process?

In most cases we’ll be assessing your CV and the additional information you provide as part of your application. However, the recruiter may review your details on sites such as LinkedIn to get a fuller understanding of your background and to review information on your profile.

What is your approach to equality, diversity and inclusion?

Equality, diversity, and inclusion are at the heart of our organisation. We seek to promote fair employment procedures and practices to ensure equal opportunities for all. Please check out our dedicated inclusive recruitment page for more information on our process.
