Completing your application form guidance

It’s tempting to tell us all about your current job and everything you’ve done previously too; but we’re really interested to hear how you meet the criteria for our job – the one you’re applying for.


Completing your application form


Job title


Please enter these details on the application form so that we can identify which job you are applying for.  


Where did you see the job advertised


This is an essential requirement so that we know which methods of advertising are working for us. 


Employment history


All experience is valued and we recognise that many people have worked in a variety of situations even if it has not been full time paid employment.  Please list any work experience you have which you think would help you in the job for which you are applying, including voluntary work, temporary jobs, part-time or vacation work.


Education and training


Please use this section to provide details of any qualifications or training that you have completed or are currently undertaking.  Include any special skills training, day release, or evening classes.  You may be asked to provide proof of qualifications and training either at interview, or if you are offered the job.


Relevant experience


This is where you tell us how you meet the selection criteria for the job. Your application will be assessed against the criteria detailed in the person specification.  Do not repeat your job history, but look at the specific requirements of the job and provide evidence that you have the skills, abilities and experience to meet those requirements.  Give specific examples if possible.  The evidence you provide does not necessarily have be work based - it may be experience you have gained at home raising a family, doing voluntary work or from activities that you do in your spare time.
