At the 17th annual Great Place to Work awards, Glenveagh was recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland in 2019. It was the only Irish homebuilder to achieve this recognition.
The award is an endorsement of the approach we have adopted from day one and an amazing achievement by our highly skilled and committed staff, who are central to the ongoing success of the company. Great Place to Work Ireland is part of a global network with offices in 48 countries using the same assessment methodology to publish lists at country, regional and global levels. According to GPTW the key defining feature of a great workplace is the level of trust that exists within it.
Your first-round interview may take the form of a brief telephone interview with the Talent Acquisition Team, during which you will discuss your career to date, and in particular how your skills might fit the position in question. For certain roles, particularly those which require a high level of interaction with people, Glenveagh uses a video interviewing tool as a first step in the process. You will receive an invitation to your own personalised interview which you can complete at your leisure, using your own phone or laptop. Your video will be viewed by the Talent Acquisition Team and it may also be shared with our hiring managers relating directly to the role. This is an opportunity for you to tell us about yourself and to highlight why you are the best fit for the Company.
Your second-round interview will be a face to face interview at our offices. You will meet the Talent Acquisition Team and the Hiring Manager where you will discuss in more detail your career to date. You can expect this interview to be largely competency-based. You will of course, also have the opportunity to find out more about the company and the day to day details of the role to which you have applied.
We endeavour to provide feedback to all interviewed candidates within a timely manner. Successful candidates receive an attractive salary plus a comprehensive benefits package including healthcare and pension cover. You will participate in our company induction on your first day and receive training and support to enable you to begin to build your career with Glenveagh.
“I joined Glenveagh to gain residential development exposure and advance my career in a rapidly growing company. The company’s reputation for being innovative and delivering high quality developments were key reasons for my decision.”
“So long as each person has the passion, skillset and drive to carry out their role then it really doesn’t matter whether the candidate is male or female. What does matter is how gender diversity is integrated into the work place and viewed. This is something Glenveagh do very well. Which eliminates having to “prove your value” or “your equality”. They select the right candidates and give equal opportunities to both men and women in the workplace. More importantly they treat them equally Top down and on the ground level.”
