At Citizens UK, we use the Applied applicant tracking system for our recruitment. Applied aims to overcome unconscious bias in recruiting. Instead of using your CV alone, we'll ask questions to test skills needed for the role. The responses are anonymised and reviewed by the panel. The Applied platform also asks some demographic questions before you start your application. Citizens UK cannot see individual responses, only summary statistics so we can check if our candidate pool is balanced giving an equal chance to be hired irrespective of background. Candidates can opt out of answering these questions.

For questions regarding your application, or our recruitment process, please email

Thank you for your interest in Citizens UK and we wish you good luck with your application and job search.
