Selection Process

LBM aims to attract and retain the highest level of candidates. We spend a lot of time reviewing and interviewing applicants and only make offers to the very best candidates.  There are normally two stages to the recruitment process. The first stage is a sift, which identifies applicants who appear from the information provided in their application to be best suited to the role’s requirements. Those who go through this stage will then be invited to the first interview.
Application 
In the first instance, you should send a copy of your CV and a cover letter to careers@blockmanagement.com, outlining the role that you are applying for and why you consider yourself to be a suitable applicant.
First interview 
Successful applicants will be invited to a first interview with two of our team members. This is a 2-hour long process.  On arrival, the applicants will be welcomed to the office, offered refreshments and a quiet room to undertake a series of short tests.  Afterwards, the interview will take place; this is typically completed by two of our Portfolio Directors.  
Second interview 
Applicants who are successful after the first stage interview will be invited back for a second interview, typically conducted by an Associate Director.  
We strongly believe in the benefits of constructive feedback and make sure to provide this quickly following any interview.  All applicants will be notified of the outcome within 24 hours following the second interview.
