We have put together a list of our most commonly asked questions to provide you with further insight and information around our recruitment process. 

Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions

Can I submit my CV by e mail?
We are only able to accept applications through the Bentley Careers website. You have the option to apply for a specific vacancy or register your interest by joining our talent community. By applying through the careers website your details are stored safely, in line with our data protection policy and access is restricted to the Talent Acquisition team and relevant Hiring Manager. Additionally we are able to retain your details on file and contact you should a suitable opportunity arise in the future.

Can I apply after the closing date?
We are unable to accept applications after the closing date. This is to allow the recruitment process to progress to the next stage and to ensure we do not have candidates at different stages with delays.

How do I track my application status?
You can track the progress of your application through the Bentley careers website. Login through the My Profile button using the email address and password created at application stage. If you have forgotten your password you can click on the Forgot My Password link and you will receive a link to reset your password. Once you have logged in, navigate to Jobs Applied and click on the arrow to open. Here you will be able to see each vacancy you have applied for and the status of your application.

If I am unsuccessful at application stage, can I have feedback?
Unfortunately, due to the high volume of applications we are unable to provide bespoke feedback at application stage. In the majority of cases, a candidate’s application is unsuccessful because their experience does not meet the selection criteria outlined in the ‘About the Person’ section.

What is the Bentley assessment process?
The recruitment process may vary depending on the level of the role. As standard there would be a competency interview based on the Bentley behaviours and a presentation. The presentation may be prepared in advance or may be a timed task on the day of your assessment. For senior management/leadership role, a role play and second stage interview may be introduced.
We adopt a mixed mode approach to assessments based on the exercises involved and the needs of each vacancy, therefore your assessment may take place by Microsoft teams or if a practical exercise is involved you may be invited to our Crewe campus.
