Tips for completing your application form
- Make sure that your completed application form demonstrates that you have the skills, knowledge, experience, legal and/or professional qualifications as described in the person specification section of the job description.
- Give specific examples to illustrate how your skills and knowledge meet the person specification. Your evidence should be clear and relate as closely as possible to the person specification.
- Address each point in the person specification in turn.
- Give thought to previous work experience or other responsibilities that may help you to uncover skills that you may have taken for granted. Do not forget the skills and experience that you may have gained outside full-time work.
- If you have been out of paid employment for a long time, or have never been employed, your job history may be less important than some of the responsibilities and experience that you have had more recently.
- If you require additional support due to a disability or long-term health condition please contact us directly.
