Application Process

Filling out your application

All applications should be made online via NHS jobs or TRAC to ensure a fair and consistent process.

CV’s are not accepted for any posts but some Medical posts may allow the applicant to upload a CV as well as completing the application form.   It is therefore vital that you complete the application form fully as this is the only document used for short listing.

Guidance for online applications

•Read the advert thoroughly - Ensure you fully read through the advert and pay particular attention to the job description and person specification.  The job description shows you the main duties and responsibilities for the role and the person specification shows you the essential and desirable qualifications, skills and knowledge required for the job.

•Further information – If you have any additional questions about the role or you would like an informal discussion you can contact the named person on the vacancy.

•Prove you meet the essential criteria – The person specification shows the essential criteria required for the role.  In you supporting information, you need to show how you meet these criteria and state how your skills match both the job description and person specification.  It is a good idea to use examples from current/previous roles on how you meet the criteria.  If you do not show how you meet the criteria we are unlikely to shortlist you for interview.

•Tailor your application – Ensure you take time to change the supporting information so it is specific to the job role you are applying for.  The supporting evidence is your chance to sell yourself and your skills so make the most of this opportunity.

•Up to date information – Take time to check your application form especially personal information such as name, address and particularly email address and telephone numbers are correct as this is how we will contact you.  Ensure referees are your most recent manager/ education and that you provide business email addresses for them.

•Final Check – Once you have completed your application, read through it again to ensure there that there are no omissions or spelling mistakes.  At any time when completing your application you are able to save it before submitting.  Please note that once you application has been submitted you are unable to make any changes to the supporting information.  

•Check the closing date –Some posts do not have a closing date and close after we have received a certain number of applications.  After the closing date we are not able to accept any more applications.
