Values Based Interbiewing

Our values underpin who we are and what we stand for. They form the basis of how we approach our business, and they guide every decision we make. They ensure we do the right thing by our customers, communities, and colleagues, and help us to make a positive difference every day.

We put customers first in everything we do
Straight forward
We work hard to make things simpler
We do the right thing
We embrace new ideas to continually improve
Better together
We work as one team

Cultural fit is just as important to us as technical competence and assessing against our core values plays a major role in our recruitment process. It’s just as much about you choosing us as us choosing you, so you’ll have the opportunity to get to know The Cumberland and the people that make it such a great place to work.

You may be asked to give examples from your previous experience which show how you have demonstrated each of our values in the past.

In any interview we believe preparation is the key to success. Coming to the interview with some great examples of how you’ve demonstrated our values will help you feel prepared and confident.

We know that you’ll want to tell us all about yourself at the interview and we can’t wait to hear about what you’ve been doing. Feel free to write down some reminders and bring them along if you’d like to. All we ask is that you don’t read completely from your notes as we like to get an impression of the real you from our conversation.
