The 6 steps leading you to
the work of your life


Just as no two applicants are the same, each recruitment journey differs a little
due to factors like the role, the team, and the location.
​​​​​​​However, on the whole, your recruitment journey at Philips will look a little like this.​


Step 1
Submit your application


Once you've completed and submitted your application
via our careers site, you'll receive an automatic confirmation
email via our careers platform, just to let you know
​​​​​​​we've received your application and it's being reviewed.

Step 2
Wait to hear whether
​​​​​​​you've been shortlisted 

A member of our team will contact you to let you know whether your application has been shortlisted. Depending on the role, you may also be asked to complete some additional technical tests at this point.​
​If you're not successful on this occasion, sign up to our Talent Community, where you'll be informed of new roles that might be a better fit.

Wait to hear if you've been shortlisted
If you're a graduate applying for an early career role or internship, you may at this point be asked to record a short video answering a few questions related to the role you’re applying for. This will help our team to assess your skills, background and personality. Just be yourself.


Step 3
Your first conversation with Philips


Now's your time to really shine. You'll speak to a member of our Talent Acquisition team and learn more about the role, the team and Philips.
This is as much about seeing if we're a good fit for you as the other way around. If everything clicks, you'll go on to follow-up interviews.
​​​​​​​If not, we'll let you know precisely why.


Step 4
The next round of interviews


Next up is an interview which will likely be with the hiring manager or a member of the team. This could take place in person or via a video call. 
There are likely to be several interviews at this stage, depending on the role and its responsibilities, the team, and the location. They're all important, so be prepped to impress.

Step 5
The waiting game


Yes, this is the really hard part: waiting while our recruiters and
the hiring manager make the difficult decision. We know how
​​​​​​​unsettling it can be, so we'll try to inform you as soon as possible.


Step 6
Welcome to the team!


Congratulations, you nailed it! You'll receive a final offer and
then there are just a few tasks to complete, such as agreeing
on a starting date. You're almost ready to start doing
the work of your life to help the lives of others.
