Making a successful application

When applying for a position you need to make sure your application does you justice and provides you with the best possible chance of getting an interview. This means reading the job description and person specification and taking time over your application to demonstrate your skills and experience.

How good a match are you?

The recruiting panel will be judging how well your application matches the person specification for the position you are applying for.  Therefore we advise that you tailor your application around the person specification and provide clear examples of how you meet each of the criteria.

Never submit the same application form twice. Always adapt it to show how you meet the person specification of the particular post you are applying for.

Complete all the parts of the form

Read the instructions given when applying very carefully and make sure that you complete all the sections of the application form. The information you give  will be used to decide if you should be shortlisted for interview.

The personal information and monitoring information sections will not be used for shortlisting, but will be kept for administrative purposes only.

Provide good supporting information

The supporting information section is your opportunity to demonstrate your suitability, therefore make sure you use it to your advantage. You can include any information here that has not been covered elsewhere on the form. Demonstrate why you would be suitable and how you meet the person specification. You need to convince the recruiting panel that you have the required skills, knowledge and experience.

We wish you luck in your application.
