Applying for a job
Firstly, read the job description carefully to see if you have the skills and qualities outlined. The job description or role specification includes the competency levels required for each role.
Important - before you complete the job application form
You will need to complete the job application form in one session. It is not possible to save it and finish it later.
Before completing the form, make sure you have the following details to hand:
- Education history
- Employment history – including dates / employment gaps / volunteer work
- Previous names or name changes
- Citizenship details
- Criminal record / convictions
- Disability information
To have the best chance of being successful, complete all sections of the application form, including additional information. This section gives you the opportunity to show how you meet the criteria in the person specification.
