Essentials to consider when applying

Job descriptions and person specifications

Job Descriptions and Person Specifications are attached to all online job adverts, and should be used by you to assess your suitability for a vacancy, prior to completing an application. The Job Description details the responsibilities of the role, and the Person Specification identifies the skills, knowledge, experience and competencies required to fulfil the requirements of the role.

Please refer to these documents throughout the recruitment process to ensure the information you provide during the application, assessment and interview stages, demonstrates how you meet the requirements of the role outlined in these two documents. Please note these documents will not be available online once the closing date for the vacancy has passed.
