Recruitment approach

Step 1: Research

Before submitting your application and CV it's important you feel LV= is the right employer for you. Have a look around on here and also visits our site. You might like to check out our social media sites Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn to get a better idea of who we are and what we do.

Step 2: Apply online

First of all, make sure your CV is ready!

Once you’ve found a job that suits your skills and experiences please follow the apply links at the bottom of the advert. Follow the online application guide where you’ll be prompted to complete some initial application questions. After that simply upload your CV and any other information you feel is relevant to showcase yourself for the role and submit your application. This will take you about half an hour. 

A colleague in our recruitment team will review your application against the role you have applied for and will let you know if you’ve been shortlisted for the next stage. Make sure you keep an eye on your emails and your phone.

Step 3: The selection process

Telephone interview

You might be invited to book in for a telephone interview using our online booking system. This is a great opportunity for you to get to know us, find out more about life at LV=, understand the role and team in more detail and answer any questions. It’s also our opportunity to get to know you better, your Recruiter will have a handful of key questions to cover and some competency based questions.

We recommend you find a quiet place, make sure you have good signal if using a mobile phone and have a glass of water at the ready.

Face to Face interview

You’ll be invited to meet with us at one of our offices. Most of our interviews are competency based related to the behaviours and technical skills needed to succeed in the role. To make sure you’re prepared as best as possible, we’ll always be clear on what to expect during the interview process when we first talk to you – so no need to worry!

Please remember to bring your Passport, proof of current address and National Insurance (NI) number.
If you require any reasonable adjustment to your telephone interview or any stage of the recruitment process, please send us an email to, or to for LV= GI (General Insurance), so we can help.

Step 4: Outcome

Once all interviews are complete, your Recruiter will be back in touch to let you know the outcome of your application.

If you’ve been successful, we’ll call you to talk through the details of the offer and answer any questions you may have. As we are FCA regulated all our offers are subject to referencing and we’ll explain what that entails when we discuss the offer with you.

If you don’t quite have the required competencies for the role you’ve applied for, we’ll let you know that you haven’t been successful on this occasion and if you’d like more details, we’ll be happy to explain why.

If you’re not successful or the role isn’t quite right for you, don’t be disheartened, we’re always keen to keep in touch with talent outside of LV= for other opportunities in the future.

In addition, you can register for future job alerts where you’ll be notified of future jobs that match your search criteria as they come up.
