Support for candidates

Get vacancy alerts

As vacancies are advertised in real-time, it is advisable to regularly check our job pages for suitable vacancies. To get email alerts on future vacancies, you can register your details.

Support on completing an application form

We use both CVs and application forms. If you have a CV you can speed up the application process by uploading it. Our system will then populate the application form.

You can then complete any additional fields and the personal statement on how you meet the criteria. You will also be able to review all information is correct before submitting. If you do not have a CV then the application form can be completed in the usual way.

All progress made on an application can be saved  for when you next log in. Once it has been submitted you will receive a notification to confirm receipt.

Incorporating values and behaviours

Our Values and the associated behavioural indicators will define how we do things around here. They are important because they will be the drivers to achieving our organisational aims. They will inspire us, challenge us and lead us toward our goals.

When applying for a role you may want to think about how you can demonstrate our values and behaviours in the essential criteria. If you are attending an interview you may want to prepare by thinking about how to include examples of the values and behaviours in your answers to the interview questions. This could be from challenging a process, creating efficiencies or working across teams to support a customer through their journey.

See more information about the behavioural indicators for our values. They are split between officers and managers.

Assessment Types

We may use a number of ways to assess candidates suitability for a role. The types of assessment can range from:

  • psychometric testing
  • verbal and numerical reasoning
  • presentation skills
  • desktop exercises

You will be notified what types of assessment will be used  prior to the interview.
