How to Apply

Make your Application Stand Out

Please read through the application form carefully and follow the instructions given for each section. Ensure that you complete all sections fully and submit the form.

The personal information you provide on pages 1 and 2 of the application form is requested for monitoring purposes. This information is confidential and will be separated from your application before the shortlisting process and will only be referred to if you have been shortlisted to attend an interview.

The additional information section of the application form and the four questions that follow is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your suitability for the role that you are applying for. Use this space to explain why you are interested in the post. You can give examples of the qualities and relevant transferable skills you have that will contribute to the role. It is essential to relate your experience to the job description and person specification to enable short-listing managers to assess your suitability for the role. Make sure you provide as much relevant information as possible.

Submitting your Application and What Happens Next

Application forms should be submitted by email to  

All vacancies specify a closing date. Applications received after the closing date and time will not be accepted. We will in touch shortly after the closing date to let you know if you are invited to attend an interview.

What the Law Says

In accordance with the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996, we require new members of staff to provide documentary evidence that they are legally entitled to work in the UK.

All candidates are asked to declare criminal convictions. A criminal conviction will not necessarily stop you from getting an employment. If you have declared a criminal conviction, it will only be considered if you are selected for an interview. If the interview panel believe this may have a bearing on the requirements of the post, this will be discussed further with you.

All positions involving contact with service users will require a criminal records check from the Disclosure and Barring Service under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. However, possession of a criminal record, either current or spent, will not necessarily prohibit an offer of employment.

How to Apply

Each job advertisement will clearly state if you are required to provide a CV and covering letter or complete an application form. Please read the advertisement carefully, as we will only be able to accept specified application methods.
