Completing your application form
We have tried to keep our application form as simple as possible. These notes are to help you complete the form.
What you say on the application form is all that will be used to decide whether or not to shortlist you for the post so you must complete all the parts on the form which apply to you. CVs will not be accepted unless specified.
Education and qualifications
Give a list of all the education and training you have undertaken. Please list all professional qualifications you have acquired. If a particular qualification is essential for the job you may be asked to provide original certificates.
Starting with your current or last employer list all the employers you have worked for over the past 10 years. Please include periods of paid and voluntary work.
Please support your application form with a short resume of your qualities, skills, experience and achievements particularly as they relate to the job description and person specification.
Please give details of two people (not related to you) who can give you a reference. One should be your present or most recent employer and the other should be a previous employer or should know you in connection with your work.
If you do not wish us to contact your referees before the interview we will not do so. However, reference will be taken up on offer of employment.
Equality Monitoring Form
In order to assess how successful our end policy is, we have set up a system of monitoring all job applications. We have asked for your name to enable us to monitor applications at shortlisting and appointment as well as application stage. Your application will not, however, be affected by the information you provide. This form is separate from your application form, is stored separately and used only to provide statistics for monitoring purposes.
If you have any queries regarding the completion of the application form or the equality monitoring form please do not hesitate to contact the i-appoint Team on 0207 0969 639.
