Application Tips

  • submit your application before midnight on the closing date quoted in our advert by clicking the ‘Submit’ button.
  • tailor your application to meet the needs of the employee specification. It is in your interest to make it easy for the selection panel to see how well you match the requirements of the role.
  • provide evidence and examples of how your previous experience, skills and abilities mean that you match the needs of the job i.e. the abilities/skills specified in the essential/desirable criteria of the employee specification. Remember that you may be able to draw from different areas of your life to provide relevant and useful examples, not just paid employment.
  • provide a full and continuous history of your education/training and unemployment/work experience.
  • complete all essential fields on the online application form. Incomplete application forms will not be accepted by the system.
  • have checked all spelling and grammar. Do not rely solely on computer spellcheckers. It may also help to complete your application in another document first and then copy and paste the text into the relevant box.
  • carefully consider any documentation that you choose to attach. All attachments should be relevant, add value to your application and should not duplicate information provided in the main application.
  • give yourself enough time to fully complete your application so that we have all the information we require to make an informed decision. It is also important that all the information you provide is honest and accurate.
  • Just attach your CV without also addressing the criteria in the employee specification. CVs alone will not be accepted.
  • just confirm that you can do the criteria specified in the person specification without further explanation. You need to provide clear evidence of how you meet each criterion by giving examples which draw upon previous experience, from paid or voluntary employment, education or other interests.
  • cut and paste previous supporting statements that you have used in previous applications! This will be obvious to the selection panel and will have a negative impact on their consideration of your case.
  • over inflate achievements, keep them accurate and honest.
  • make it difficult for the selection panel to assess whether you match the criteria specified for the role. By structuring your application around the criteria identified for the job, you will make your application more relevant and easier to assess.
