When applying for a post at the council you need to complete the application, diversity and criminal record forms. We cannot accept your application without this information.
Shortlisting will be conducted by a panel who will match the contents of your application against the criteria in the person specification.
If you meet all the essential criteria and you have a disability, you will be guaranteed an interview for the job.
If you are not shortlisted for an interview we will email you to let you know.
If you are shortlisted you will be invited to take part in the remaining selection process, which will involve a structured interview and in most cases a relevant work-based test.
It will also involve an occupational personality questionnaire which is administered online if the position has a responsibility for managing people.
The person specification for the role will indicate how each of the criteria will be tested for.
The application form is compatible with all the latest versions of the most popular and free web browsers: Internet explorer/Edge, Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
If you continue to experience difficulties with an online application please contact Human Resources under the 'contact this service' tab.
You can also get a job information pack by post.
Please call the human resources team on 01395 517553 and quote the relevant job reference number.
The information pack will contain details of the vacancy, an application form and details of where you should send your completed form.
