  • The online application screens are designed to collect the information that is required from you in a clear and structured way. Please ensure that you complete all of the fields.  Help will be available to guide you through the form.
  • The online application form can be completed in stages and you can login/logout at any time. You will be able to save and edit your application at any point BEFORE submission. It is only when you have submitted your completed application that it will become accessible for consideration by the recruiting managers.
  • The system does allow for a curriculum vitae (CV) to be uploaded, however  this should be as an addition to and not instead of completing the online application process screens.
  • The job description, person specification and further information are written to provide you with a clear understanding of the duties and responsibilities and the key attributes and experience that are required to fulfil the role.  These should be seen as the main points of reference when completing the supporting statements.
  • The final section of the application process invites you to write a statement in support of your application which gives you the opportunity to present yourself.  In completing this section you may wish to take time to think about what you have done that is applicable to the post for which you are applying.  The relevant transferable skills and experience you outline within your statement need not only be drawn from current or previous employment, but could be taken non-work related activities in which you have been/are involved.  

Be sure to provide an email address you use regularly, because that’s how we’ll keep in touch with you about your application.  Once you have made an application, information is stored that will be available to you to use should you logon again to apply for another role.

If you do not have access to the internet telephone 0121-204-4500 and leave your name and address quoting the reference number.
