Do I need to include a cover letter with my CV when applying?


It’s not required, but a personalized letter is always welcome! It’s a way for you to provide additional information that’s relevant to your application.

Will I receive a call from the Talent Acquisition team about my application?


We carefully consider each application, but we only contact individuals selected for a preselection interview.

The interview, which lasts about 20 minutes, is used to confirm your interest in the position and assess the relevance of your profile to the business need.

It allows us to examine whether your experience and skills meet our requirements. From your standpoint, it’s a first opportunity to ask questions about the position, team or organization.

Since we have adopted a hybrid work model, you could be asked to come to our offices or take part in a call via Teams.

During the first interview, you’ll usually meet with someone from the Talent Acquisition team and the team manager. You can expect to be asked questions about your career path, your skills and what interests you about the position and our culture. Take time to prepare concrete examples and don’t hesitate to ask questions!
