Application guidance

How to complete your application form.

 

Completing an application form

All job applications must be made via the website unless otherwise stated. We do not accept speculative CVs. Before submitting your application, please make sure that you have read the Recruitment Pack carefully.

 

Your application will be assessed according to how closely you meet the knowledge, skills and attributes required. It is important that you demonstrate, by giving examples, how you meet criteria. Applications will be considered by a selection panel and a shortlist will be drawn up on the basis of the experience, skills and attributes required to undertake the duties for the post.

 

When making your application, there are some details you must provide. These mandatory fields are marked with a red star.

 

You are required to provide us with the names and contact details of two referees who can provide information regarding your suitability for the post, one of which should be your current or most recent employer. Students should give the name of a lecturer/tutor/supervisor as appropriate.

 

Once you have completed all sections of the application form and attached any requested documents, a 'submit' button will appear allowing you to send your application to us.

 

You will receive an acknowledgement by email. You can print out an application summary sheet showing the information you have submitted.

 

If you do not receive an acknowledgment email, check your junk/spam email folders. If you still have not received acknowledgment, it may mean that you have not successfully submitted your application, in which case you should contact the Recruitment team by email at : humanresources@uttlesford.gov.uk
