The recruitment process for active job openings can take 2-4 weeks.
The length of time varies depending on how many applications we receive and how quickly candidates respond to our recruitment emails. However, you’ll usually have a response within a week of your application or assessment.
For open applications, we’ll add your application to the 5CA talent pool and consider you when an active position becomes available.
The 5CA recruitment process consists of six simple steps:
1. Application: The first step in our recruitment process. If your skills and experience match our job requirements and the position aligns with your career goals, don’t hesitate to submit your application!
2. Screening interview: If you are shortlisted, you will be invited for our first interview with a recruiter and the hiring manager. This interview typically lasts 45 minutes.
3. Assessment: During our recruitment process, we use psychometric assessments to determine if candidates have the right skill set and attributes for their applied position. We, therefore, assess whether a candidate is the right fit for a role.
4. Hiring Manager & HR interview: If your first interview is successful and you have passed the assessments, you’ll meet HR and the Hiring Manager for a second interview. This interview can take up to 1 hour.
5. Final interview: Depending on the position you have applied for, you may be required to attend a final interview with other team members. Alternatively, you may be required to complete a business case or take-home assessment instead of a final interview. This interview typically lasts 45 minutes.
6. Offer: If you complete all stages successfully, we’ll extend an offer and provide the tools and support you need to thrive in your new role at 5CA.

- Complete your assessments on a laptop or PC (not a mobile phone) with a good internet connection (Wi-Fi, 4G/5G).

5CA offers competitive market salaries for all open positions, which vary depending on the candidate’s location. We strive to ensure that our compensation packages align with industry standards and reflect candidate skills and experience.
To help us provide a salary offer that meets your expectations, we encourage you to share your salary expectations in your application form. Additionally, during the recruitment process, you can discuss your compensation package with your recruiter, who will work with you to find a suitable arrangement.
Most 5CA staff positions have schedules that run from Monday to Friday. However, depending on the specific role and team requirements, you may need guaranteed availability outside regular business hours.
Your recruiter will provide relevant information regarding the job description and work schedule during the application process. If you have any further queries or concerns about working hours, please discuss them with your recruiter during the interview process.
We encourage open and transparent communication to ensure our employees have a positive and fulfilling work experience at 5CA.
Contracts depend on location and our open positions.
- Location: Freelance or Payroll
- Position: Hours, Duration, and/or Payroll implementation (temporary, fixed term, indefinite)
Your recruiter will discuss these options with you during the recruitment process.
Depending on the position, 5CA may provide a visa/work permit and a relocation package. This information will be clearly stated in the job ad. You can also discuss it with your recruiter in the first interview.
At 5CA, we believe training is essential to ensure our employees have the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed. Staff training is dependent on the complexity and familiarity with the required tools.
We value continuous learning and encourage employees to participate in ongoing training and development programs to enhance their skills and knowledge. 5CA is committed to supporting employees’ professional growth and development to help them achieve their career goals.
We appreciate your enthusiasm for working with us. Unfortunately, it isn’t easy to put a timeline on talent pool-to-work as we can never predict how quickly positions will open.
We’ll secure and keep your information available for one year (max), providing enough time for us to find a position for you. (Note: we’ll usually find you a position far sooner than a year!)
You’ll remain an active member of the 5CA Talent Pool for 12 months.
Each department develops internal training based on role requirements; we also offer access to our learning experience platform, which contains a library of online training courses that employees can register for.
5CA encourages open communication between employees and their managers. Employees who feel that a specific training course is crucial to their job are welcome to discuss it with their manager. We are committed to supporting our employees’ ongoing professional development and providing them with the necessary resources to succeed.

5CA is open to applications from almost anywhere in the world, provided you meet a job’s requirements. However, we consider plenty of things when reviewing your application.
For example, we consider shifts and working hours for all positions. As a company, we aim to pay a fair wage while ensuring employees avoid working night shifts wherever possible.
If you’re based in a location we can’t receive applications from, you’ll see a notice in the application form letting you know if we can process your application further. If no such message is present, feel free to apply.
As a work-from-home employee, you will be responsible for providing your own device to work on. However, for hybrid positions where you split your time between working from home and the office, we provide hardware material on your first day in the office.
