I Have Completed My Application Form

What Happens Next?

Once you have completed your application form, send your form in either by e-mail or by post to the address given.

If you return your application form by post, please ensure the correct postage is paid. Application forms without the correct postage will regrettably be returned to sender.

Your application form must be received no later than the advertised closing date.

When we receive your application form it will be registered, then a day or two after the closing date your application form will be passed to the recruitment selection panel to shortlist.

Each member of the selection panel will read your application form and will be looking at how the information you have written about your experience, skills and abilities, match the criteria shown on the person specification.

The selection panel as a team will make the decision on whether you will be invited for an interview.The selection panel can only assess your suitability for interview from the information you have written on your application form, so demonstrate your experience, skills and abilities fully and clearly.

If you are successful at the shortlisting stage, you will normally be notified by letter of the interview date and time. Where applicable, the invite to interview letter will also confirm arrangements of any work-based exercise/test or presentation. The person specification indicates how the assessment criteria will be assessed i.e. work-based exercise (E), test (T) or presentation (P).

Please note, if you have not been contacted within 28 days of the closing date, you may assume that you have not been selected for an interview on this occasion.
