What happens next
What will happen if you are offered an interview or if your application has been unsuccessful.
Once the job application period has closed we will look at all of the applications and decide on those to shortlist. If you have been shortlisted for the next stage of the selection process we will contact you to arrange an interview.
If your application has been unsuccessful, you will be notified via email after the closing date. This could take a couple of weeks, depending on how long it takes for the selection panel/committee to shortlist. If you have been unsuccessful at interview stage you may request feedback by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Attending an interview
The shortlisting decision will have been based solely on the information you have provided in your application. Even if you are already known to the Council as a current or previous employee you must ensure that you have provided sufficient evidence of how you meet the job criteria.
Arranging your interview
If you are shortlisted we will contact you via email to invite you to attend an interview and you may be asked to schedule your own interview time. If communication by email is not possible, please let us know.
We will try, wherever possible, to give you one week's notice of the interview date. Whilst we will try to be as flexible as possible to accommodate your needs, it will not always possible to re-arrange the scheduled interview date/time.
You will be able to view any interview information via the "My applicant" tab.
If for any reason you are unable to attend the selection process, please let us know as early as possible.
At the interview
You will be interviewed by at least two people. If you are required to give a presentation or undertake a test or task as part of the selection process you will be given full details when you are invited for interview.
After the interview
We will let you know whether you are successful or unsuccessful at each stage of the process.
