Joining our family at HB
If you’ve ever wondered how to get a job at Heritage Brands, you’re arrived in the right place!
We asked our very own recruiting team how to stand out from the crowd, what to expect when you’re interviewing and what often surprises candidates about Heritage Brands.
What makes a candidate stand out from the crowd?
1, Personality and the ability to prove worth. We want to know what an employee would bring to the table if they were hired!
2, Using words like “team player” and “collaborator”! 90% of hiring someone here is based on finding someone who believes in the same things we do and is passionate about our brand. We love candidates who can come in on day one and bring fresh ideas.
3, Having relevant experience in the role you’re applying for, and speaking to coaching, developing and creating a happy environment. It also means a lot to us if you’ve used or studied about the brand you’re interviewing for and can articulate why you’re interested in this brand and opportunity.
1, It’s like no other company out there! No single day at work is ever going to be the same, and nothing is set out on a pretty little platter for you. You have to be OK with chaos, sometimes sudden change, and be ready to step outside your comfort zone.
2, Follow our campaigns! Go to our brand specific websites or social pages talk and learn about our products and our brand. When we get an application from a candidate who has done their homework on the company, it really does make a difference.
3, Do some research on the company, the role and specific location you’re interested in. Know why you want to work there but also know what you’d like to gain from Heritage Brands in terms of your career goals. We’re interviewing you, but you should interview us as well!
What advice for candidates who want to work with us?
Is there anything a candidate should absolutely NOT do?
1, Talk badly about a previous employer. It’s important that a candidate can show they can learn from an experience, appreciate the opportunity and move on gracefully.
2, A common mistake is applying to every open position. You’re far more likely to be successful if you focus on where you want to see yourself growing in the next 3/5/10 years and apply to roles that relate directly to getting you there.
3, Don’t apply try to fit a square peg into a round hole. Think about where your skills fit in the most, and apply for the role that most closely matches your qualifications.
Are there any special considerations for your particular area of the business?
Happy to be in a very fast-paced environment, we work hard but we have a ton of fun too!
As our head office is located in Melbourne South Eastern Suburbs, we require most of our candidates to be able to work in-house at the office. With that said, we do have some roles from time to time that require travelling work schedules.
It’s important to demonstrate how you meet the job requirements as they’re specified in the job description. And if you’re able to relocate, it’ll open up more opportunities for you, we are a growing retailer and need people to grow with us!
