Imerys, Transform to perform

Practical advice



Practical advice

The advice below is offered for your information. It has been developed jointly by all Group employees involved in recruitment (HR and operational staff).

Covering letter

- Summarize points
- Explain why you want to join Imerys and why you are interested in the post offered
- Do not repeat your CV – provide additional information
- Beware of spelling errors… and copying and pasting (another company name in the body of the letter)!


- Again, summarize points
- Keep it simple (colors, fonts, etc.)
- Set out objective and specific elements of your experience enabling us to assess whether your application matches the profile we are looking for (two or three points per experience)
- A photo is not compulsory, but remember to include up-to-date contact details
- Languages and IT skills: state your actual level to avoid making a poor impression later
- Activities outside work: only indicate those you practice regularly

Interview preparation

The recruitment interview is a crucial stage in your job search. Good preparation is therefore vital.
- Before your appointment, find out about our business (from the site, brochures, former employees, etc.)
- Prepare some questions to ask your interviewers at the end of the meetings (demonstrate your interest)
- Dress suitably for the position you are applying for. Favor traditional clothing and be well presented. Be as neutral as possible
- Recruitment interviews are opportunities for exchanging objective information (what is said) as well as subjective information (non-verbal language and attitude). Be aware of this.

We are looking for a match between your profile and the position for which we are recruiting. You will therefore be assessed on your skills, professional expertise and personality
