Our selection process

The first step of our selection process is the application form.  We have carefully designed our application form to help us select the very best person for the role so unless specifically specified in the job advert, we cannot accept CVs.

Please make sure that you have read the Role Profile for the job carefully as within the Role Profile, there is a detailed Person Specification which sets out what we are looking for in the successful candidate. 

We select who to interview based on what you say in your application about how you meet each of the criteria for the job role, so it is therefore vital that you clearly explain how your skills and experience match the requirements outlined in the Role Profile. 

Any applicant who declares that they have a disability and meets the essential criteria for the role will be guaranteed an interview.

We welcome applications from all sections of the community, if you have any problems with applying through our online form, please talk to us – 03000 120 120.

What happens next?    

After submitting your application form, it will be shortlisted against the criteria in the Role Profile.  Once this shortlisting is completed, all candidates will be notified by email whether they have been selected for interview or not.  You can also keep track of your application by logging into your account here.

If you are successful in securing an interview, you will be told where and when you need to attend, who you will be meeting and what you can expect.  Some positions will require a written test, assessment or personality questionnaire as well as an interview.  This will be all detailed in the email to you and you will be asked to confirm your attendance.

Some roles within the Group will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.  This will be stated on the job advert if this is necessary for the post.  Please click here to view our Recruitment of Ex-Offenders Policy.
