How to apply for a job with us

Applying for any of of jobs is simple, however please set aside 10-15 minutes of your time before you start, because we like to get as much information as we can from you before making a decision on who we would like to interview. The process involves four simple steps.
 
Use the search box to find the position you are interested in
  
You can do this by either entering a ref number (if you have seen the position advertised) or by entering a keyword. Alternatively, if you want to view all our current job listings simply click on the VACANCIES tab above.
 
Answer our simple questionnaire
  
This is normally no more than 10-15 questions, which are designed to provide us with a little more information about you. Answering these questions allows us to process your application more efficiently.
 
Selection Criteria
  
It is important that your application contains specific information demonstrating how you meet the selection criteria for the advertised position.  It is not sufficient to state that you believe you meet the criteria you need to provide examples from your past experience (paid work and/or non paid work related) to support your claims.  If you provide insufficient information, you are unlikely to be considered for the vacancy.  The questions the selection panel use in the interview will be based on the selection criteria.  PLEASE NOTE:  There is a 5000 character limit for each selection criteria box.
   
Upload your CV
