Application Tips

Last updated: 03 November 2020

Make sure you read the job description and person specification before you start your application. The job description will outline the main roles and responsibilities of the job and the person specification will list the skills and experience required to do the job.

There will be a section in your application form to provide ‘Supporting information’. This is where you can describe how you meet the requirements of the person specification and these details will help the Recruiting Manager determine whether you should be invited to interview.

As part of NHS Standards we require references that will cover the three previous years of your work, education or training. Please provide full referee details on your application for managers, not work colleagues and including your current manager. We will only contact referees if you have been successful at interview.

If you have any gaps in your employment, education or training please provide details about this in your application.
