Frazer-Nash recognises the importance of making provisions for people with disabilities and neurodiversity, throughout both the application process and when you officially start your role with us.  

During the application process, we will ask you to let us know if you require any adjustments and we will adjust the process accordingly, for example, providing you with extra time to complete the task-based assessment and providing rest breaks at interview. We know that interviews can be a daunting experience and to help with this we will let you know as much information as possible prior to your interview, I.e., who you are meeting, where to go and what to expect.  

We look forward to welcoming you to Frazer-Nash and discussing your unique working preferences, ensuring that any necessary reasonable adjustments are thoughtfully considered. At Frazer-Nash, we are committed to fostering an environment of equal opportunities for all.

We welcome people re-applying to Frazer-Nash and recognise that people develop new skills and enhance existing ones over time. That said, we will only require you to complete one task-based assessment per academic year, and therefore, if you have not met the requirements, unfortunately, we will not be able to progress you under another role.

Each role description will outline the security requirements needed for individual positions. Due to the nature of the work that we undertake, certain positions will require candidates to undergo pre-employment screening and must be able to satisfy clearance criteria for UK National Security Vetting.

All applications must come through our website to ensure compliance with GDPR (data protection), however if you have any questions please feel free to email using the link below.

Graduates: Applications will be reviewed upon receipt, so we would encourage you to apply early.  An initial review of your application will be carried out, followed by inviting you to complete an online task-based assessment. If successful, we will then invite you to complete a video interview, followed by a final stage interview, including a presentation.  

Following final interview, we will provide feedback to you, including whether you have been successful. Further details of the assessment can be found here. 

Placements and Summer Intern Students: The selection process is the same as for graduates, however, you will not be required to complete a presentation at the final interview stage.  

If you are unsuccessful after your video interview, you can contact us by emailing earlycareers@fnc.co.uk to ask for feedback, which we will endeavour to provide. 

If you are unsuccessful after a final stage interview, a member of our recruitment team will contact you with feedback. 

We will reimburse any reasonable travel expenses incurred when you attend an office-based interview. If you are travelling for an interview, please check the costs and ask for approval from the Early Careers team in advance.

If you are working towards Chartership, Frazer-Nash will support you in a variety of ways. A training plan will be established, where you will be assigned a mentor to provide you with all the necessary guidance and support you need. To achieve the goals required for Chartership, we will ensure that you learn a new skill set, work within another Frazer-Nash business group/office, work in a different market sector, and broaden your technical experience. We will ensure that you acquire all of the necessary competencies during this period to successfully attain Chartership status. 

If you are performing an engineering role at Frazer-Nash, you will provide consultancy services to clients, either individually or as part of a project team. On occasion, you will work on clients’ sites, and will have the opportunity to work on projects from start to finish. You will help interpret clients’ technical requirements and provide creative ideas to solve any technical challenges. You will promote the activities, skills and services provided by Frazer-Nash, and you will help to drive forward the development of new services. As Frazer-Nash works in many different industries, you will be encouraged to learn new skills and transfer your knowledge by working in different business areas and market sectors. 

At Frazer-Nash, we encourage colleagues to work in varied disciplines, on projects across different industries. This ensures that our staff can enjoy a stimulating career and develop new skills. The projects may require that work is carried out in-house, or on clients’ sites. You can read about some of the projects we have completed by reading the case studies in our Resource centre.

Although it’s not compulsory to hold a driving licence if you work at Frazer-Nash, travelling is an integral part of our business; whether such travel is for internal meetings held at one of the Frazer-Nash offices, or to meet with our customers and stakeholders. Employee’s may use hire cars or their own cars for travelling purposes. We like to ensure that travel arrangements are appropriate, safe and efficient.

Due to the nature of consultancy, there is a certain level of contact required with our customers. Whilst Frazer-Nash has a preference for taking projects into our own offices, and will always consider the individual’s preferences, a certain amount of travel is likely to be required.
