Can’t find the position you were looking for?
If our advertised positions aren’t quite right but you want to join the team, we’d love to hear from you.
Send your cover letter and CV to: firstname.lastname@example.org
You should feel comfortable and confident about your decision to apply for a role with us, so we’ve put together a short FAQ to help you understand our hiring process.
The application process
Our application process is extremely straight-forward, no registration, no portals. Send your CV and cover letter to email@example.com and if there’s a match between what you’re looking for and what we’re looking for, we’ll be in touch to set up an interview.
If there isn’t a match, we’ll let you know, and we’ll do our best to give you feedback explaining why.
The interview process
Obviously, we’ll want to talk. Just like the application process, the interview process is simple and straight-forward.
It’s a two-stage interview process where you’ll talk with us and do a behavioural profile test, to see how you’ll fit into the team.
Our interviews primarily take place over phone or video call (if you’re local to us, and it’s possible, we would really, really like to meet you face to face) and throughout you’ll meet your manager, your colleagues and other stakeholders.
At your interview, we want to hear about your successes (and times it hasn’t gone quite to plan), your track record and your career aspirations.
Career development and culture
We’re looking for people who want to grow with us and we’re committed to supporting that growth with training sessions provided by industry-leaders, a defined career plan and access to the technology to help make that happen.
Our passion is people, and we love to see them taking control over their own destiny and being successful. We have a culture that supports that with team days, lunches and holidays.
What do I need to know about salary?
Our consultants have access to one of the industry’s most generous commission structures. You’ll be offered a basic salary, based on your experience and what you can bring to the role, but your commission will be uncapped. You have the potential to earn as much as you want.
What are you doing to create diverse and inclusive workspaces?
The MBN team is made up of different cultures, nationalities and gender and sexual identities. We encourage our people to bring their whole selves to their work and value diversity of thought and opinion. If you need any technology to help make your job easier, let us know.
Do you offer hybrid / flexible working options?
Yes. You’ll have the opportunity to work from anywhere in Europe and the UK or from our HQ in Glasgow.
What are your benefits?
We’re constantly improving our benefits and currently offer:
- Support in setting up your home office and equipment
- Generous commission
- Training and development, including a defined career plan
- The biggest tech and data network in the UK
- Enhanced paternity, maternity and bereavement leave
- 25 days annual leave plus public holidays
- Perkbox (a global benefits & rewards platform)
The heart of the UK’s commerce and business world, London is our consultants’ second home. It’s the kind of city that needs no introduction and for the team based there, it’s a hive of operation, opportunity, and community.
Our HQ is in the beautiful city of Glasgow, where we have a wonderful office buzzing with sales and operations activity. As the heart of MBN, our Glasgow office is a short walk from the Queen St train station and home to our industry leading events and Scotland based consultants.
The historic city of Edinburgh is home to our marketing and operations teams. Inspiring and innovative, our Edinburgh base keeps MBN connected across the UK. It’s a short trip to Glasgow and London and allows us to keep in touch with the tech and data community there.
