There are a series of stages in the Nova Pioneer interview process and candidates will be moved forward in the process depending on their success in the previous stage. The process is as follows:
·         Phone interview: a short conversation to understand your skills and experience a little better.
·         Practical demonstration of what you can do: you will complete a written task or a demonstration related to the role you are applying for. Teachers participate in a half-day selection day at one of our campuses as well as deliver a lesson to a class.
·         In-person interviews: at this point you will visit one of our schools to meet the team and participate in a series of in-person interviews.
·         Final interview: you’ll have a final conversation with the hiring manager before decisions are made.
