Equality and diversity
We welcome applications from everyone.
We will ask for your personal details including your nationality, ethnicity and any disabilities. These details will not be shared with the interviewers.
If you have a disability, let us know at the application stage so we can make adjustments for you. This may include accepting your application by post.
Applications should include a supporting statement. This should include examples of how you have demonstrated the role’s person specification, including:
- essential skills
To be fair to all candidates, we can’t accept job applications submitted after the closing date.
What happens after you apply
Shortlisting will be completed as soon as possible after the closing date. Only candidates who have been invited for an interview will be contacted. If you have not heard from us within two weeks of the closing date, your application has not been successful.
We will always let you know when we’d like to contact your references.
If you have taken part in certain political activities, such as holding office in a political party or holding a relevant elected office, it may mean that you can’t work for us. To discuss this before applying, contact our HR team.
If you’re successful, you’ll need to complete some pre-appointment checks. This includes a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. In Scotland, this is a Disclosure Scotland check. In Northern Ireland, it’s an Access NI check.
Higher security clearance may be required for some roles. We will only ask you about convictions and cautions that are not protected. Having a criminal record does not necessarily prevent you from working here. It depends on the nature of the position and the circumstances of your offences. Read our Employing Ex-Offenders Policy for more information.
