We can only accept applications for jobs which are made using one of our application forms when you apply for one of our jobs through the Jobs go public website.
You may provide a CV to support your application, but we cannot accept a CV on its own.
Our Fair Employment Policy means that we want to make sure that every applicant is treated fairly. This means that we are not able to consider previous applications or personal knowledge of you.
The information you provide in your application form is the only information we will use in deciding whether or not you will be shortlisted for the selection process. Your application form is therefore very important and the following advice is designed to help you complete it as effectively as possible.
Completing your application form
Give examples of the work you have been involved in and write in a positive way (e.g. I was responsible for, I organised). It is not sufficient to just repeat what the person specification states. Always remember to specify your own responsibilities rather than those of your section or department. The most important thing is to provide us with as much relevant information as possible - we are unable to guess or make assumptions.
If you have any disabilities and need assistance in completing the form, then please let us know.
Please make sure you return your application form to the email or postal address on the application form no later than the advertised closing date and time. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept applications received after this deadline.
Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form
The information you provide on the Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form will be held in confidence by the Human Resources team and logged onto a confidential recruitment database. The information is used for recruitment and selection monitoring purposes only. It is separated from the application form at the time it is received and will not form part of the selection process.
If you are successful, the information will be transferred to your personal record held on our computerised personnel system. The information will be kept in strict confidence at all times.
