Your CV – it would really help us if you removed all your personal information prior to sending your CV to us or uploading to our system. Keep your contact information in your email or provide it in the online system, but not on the documents that we’ll use for shortlisting.
A motivation statement - tell us how your experience meets the role requirements by referring closely to both the job description and the person specification. Include examples of your work or experiences which show how you will meet the job criteria and person specification and what skills you bring which would make you successful in the role.
Your motivation statement should also let us know what inspired you to apply for this role with us – tell us what it is about our work that attracted you to the organisation and the position.
We find that stronger applications have this statement – to give yourself the best opportunity for this role, please ensure you include it. No need to write pages, one side of A4 would be perfect, two would be more than enough so try to limit yourself.
We understand that the application process can be difficult if you have a condition or disability that you live with. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to shine during your application process, so please let us know what we can do to accommodate you.
If you’re invited to an interview, you may be requested to prepare a task in advance, or take part in a group activity as part of the assessment process – we’ll let you have all the details in the invitation to interview. We will also invite you to talk to us about any reasonable adjustments which would support you in fully taking part in the interview process.
The legal bit
If you’re successful, all offers of employment are conditional, subject to the following:
- We are not licensed to issue work permits so you will need to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK and will be required to present original documents if invited for interview. Information on what you’ll need to show will be provided as part of the invitation to attend an interview but you can read more on the Home Office UK Border Agency website: UK Visas and Immigration
