The online application form can be completed in stages and you can login/logout at any time. The form automatically saves as you enter your information and it is simple to move backwards and forwards within the form at any time prior to submission. Help is available at each stage to guide you through the form.

Before final submission, you can preview your application and can then choose to refine or submit the form.

Supporting Statements

Candidates must meet all essential criteria to be eligible for shortlisting. Therefore, please use this section to provide evidence of how you meet all of the requirements set out in the Job Description Person Specification using specific examples.

The Person Specification outlines what we are looking for in candidates and how we intend to assess them. Please be aware that the shortlisting panel may assume you do not meet any criteria you do not refer to and this could disadvantage your application. The criteria for selection are classified under three levels of priority:

Priority 1: These are essential criteria. Your application will be unsuccessful if you fail to meet a priority 1 criterion.

Priority 2: Failing to meet a Priority 2 criterion may not be detrimental to your chances, but it is unlikely that you will be successful if you fail to meet a number of them..

After Applying

Once you have submitted your application, you will see in the 'My Applications' area, that the status of your application will be "submitted" and it will also show the date of submission.

The following day, you will receive an acknowledgment email.

After Closing Date

The selection panel will assess all applicants against the requirements of the job description and person specification and then notify HR of their decision.

HR will then contact the applicants as appropriate.
