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.

How do I set up an account?

We suggest that you search for jobs you are interested in. Once you locate a position you are interested in it will direct you to either BrassRing or Connect People to create your account. Or you can choose to access and create accounts on both systems and set up job alerts for both.

Once you’ve chosen your preferred method of logging in, you’ll be sent a unique passcode to your email address to verify the account. You’ll then be able to proceed with setting up your profile and making applications for roles on the website.

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 by emailing privacy@mottmac.com.

Can I set up job alerts?

You can set up saved search and alerts by logging into your account. If you do not have an account search for positions you are interested in, create and account and use the ‘Create alert’ option or ‘Save this search’ option (depending on which system the job is posted).

You need an account to set up alerts, so we suggest you start there.

  1. ​Sign in or create an account
  2. Click in the link ‘Job search’ in the top left-hand corner
  3. Click the link ‘Advanced search’
  4. Enter your search criteria including sectors, disciplines, and countries of interest
  5. Click the button ‘Search’
  6. Click the link ‘Save this search’ in the right-hand corner
  7. Complete the ‘Save search’ details including the frequency of alerts
  8. Click the button ‘Save’.

You can have more than one saved search and alert. You can view them from the candidate account dashboard and from this page edit, renew or delete these searches. All alerts automatically expire in 90 days.

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 containing a unique passcode, please enter this into the field on our website, you will then be able to reset 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 be deleted.

Do you keep my details on file?

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.

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

You can email your request to privacy@mottmac.com.

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

Yes! Our recruiters carry out searches, and contact people from our database about 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 of recruitment fraud 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.
