Getting application information

Each job vacancy advertised provides an overview of the position as well as a copy of the Job Accountability Statement (JAS) the Person Specification and a link to a downloadable application and equality and diversity monitoring form.

The JAS explains the main responsibilities of the role, the person the role reports to, whether it involves managing other people, the location of the department / team and the salary details. 

The Person Specification outlines the essential and desirable skills  the successful candidate needs for each role.  It is an important part of our shortlisting and assessment process.
