How To Apply

How to apply and the hiring process

Here’s some information about what to expect when applying for a role at Veolia.

Search for jobs

You can search for roles in our careers portal by keyword, or location. To submit an application for a role on our careers portal, hit the 'Apply' button located next to the preferred job listing. The first time you apply, you'll need to create an account with us.

Creating an Account

By creating an Account in our careers portal, you can:

  • Save jobs
  • Save job applications (and come back to complete it later)
  • Submit job applications
  • Sign up for job notifications

If there are no roles that currently suit your experience we would still love to hear from you! Please create an account in our careers portal, and sign up for notifications. You can also submit your resume and register your interest for future roles. 


Submitting your application

Once you’ve created your profile in the careers portal, sign in and access your application and personal information. Complete your application and submit this by following the prompts.


Being shortlisted

If you're successful in being short-listed, you'll receive a phone call from one of our Talent Acquisition Team members who will talk to you more about the role and also ask you a few questions around your experience, why you want to work for Veolia and qualifying questions such as salary, notice period and location. This is also a great opportunity to ask them questions and to find out more about the role. 



Interviews provide an opportunity for us to get to know you and for you to obtain more information about Veolia and the role you've applied for. Interviews take place with the hiring manager, team members and other key stakeholders from across the business. This will vary depending on the level and type of role you have applied for.

We may use Behavioural Interview questions which are designed to get you to talk about how you responded to or handled specific situations or events in the past. To best answer these questions you need to set the scene, describe the action you took and explain what the outcome was.


Psychometric Assessments

These may be used as an additional assessment method between your first and second round interview. Types of psychometric testing that may be used include verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning, diagrammatic reasoning, abstract reasoning, error checking and personality tests.


Pre Employment Checks

As a leading provider of environmental services, safety and security is paramount to us. All Veolia employees are required to pass a medical examination, and depending on the role you are applying for, you might also need to complete a background check or provide us with your driving history.

Preparing your resume

First impressions count, so ensure your CV is up to date and highlights skills and experience relevant to the job for which you are applying. Be sure to highlight your accomplishments in previous jobs—not just your duties. Do you have past projects to share? Include them as attachments or links, to give us a better sense of your style.

Protecting your personal information

When you apply for a job through our jobs portal, you'll provide us with confidential information about yourself. Veolia is committed to storing and managing your information in accordance with our Privacy Policy, and at all times you’ll have the ability to view, update or remove your personal profile.

Recruitment Agencies

Veolia does not accept unsolicited resumes from external agencies. We will not recognise an entitlement to an introduction or placement fee unless the agency has been briefed by a member of the Talent Acquisition Team for a specific position.
