About the job


You will be based at St Pancras International rail terminal where the Eurostar operation runs, and this will be considered your normal place of work (your base site). The St Pancras team also cover London City Airport where you will also be required to work. As is normal with the IPS Interviewer positions, any contract awarded will include the requirement to work weekends when necessary.

As an IPS Interviewer, you will work as part of a small team using your friendly interpersonal skills to persuade a wide range of people to participate in this important interview. Some people take more persuading than others to take part, therefore you will need an adaptable interviewing style. Once the information has been gathered, you will enter it on to a tablet.

As the statistics are required daily, a key requirement of this role is that you have the flexibility to work allocated shifts on any day of the week. Shifts operate on a rota basis covering 7 days a week. Shift lengths are normally 6.5 to 8.5 hours, plus you are required to be at the workstation for 15 minutes before and after a shift time. As is normal with the IPS Interviewer positions, any contract awarded will include the requirement to work weekends when necessary.

You will be provided with a free uniform.

transport. St Pancras is within the London Congestion Charge Zone. Car parking is provided at London City Airport. Use of a vehicle is not required for this role. When travelling to work by public transport you will need to consider before applying if you will be able to attend for work at the required times because of the early and late shift times.
