OUR HIRING PROCESS
We want to get to know you and you to get to know EDGE.
The process ensures it’s a win-win for all involved. We begin with an interview with one of our talent acquisition partners, followed by an online assessment. The next step is an in-person or online interview with the hiring manager and then, for certain roles, a case study exercise that lets you see what type of skills we’re looking for and for us to assess your strengths.
The final step concludes with reference enquiries and internal checks. Following that, we present you with an offer. Once you accept, we then look forward to welcoming you to the team!
EDGE employees are some of the most talented people in their fields. They challenge themselves to operate at their best every day – inspired and enabled by peers, by customer challenges, and by exceptional resources and facilities.
The work we do is important. Our employees care because every day they are helping to make a safer, more secure future. In the industries in which we operate, we deliver impact, providing our employees with a clear sense of purpose that inspires breakthrough ideas and approaches.

Our innovation and agility, the creativity of our teams, and our appeal as an employer of choice are made possible by this multicultural, multinational workforce.
People join us for what we do. They stay with us for who we are.
At EDGE, we have studied our businesses, our industries, and our people to understand how we can help employees grow, develop and deliver success. Four behavioural competencies guide our employees and help them to thrive. We call this the EDGE DNA:
This means imagining what comes next for our company and our customers; putting the customer at the centre of our thinking, and ensuring that we and they stay ahead of the competition.
What’s required here is taking ownership of roadblocks and challenges, and taking initiative to solve them in a creative, constructive and efficient manner.
Our employees work with integrity and clarity, engaging as a strong team player, and inspiring, encouraging and developing others.
This thinking embraces the urgency of making change happen now, across the organisation, to address the relentless forces challenging the status quo.
