Making an application


Before submitting your application, make sure you’ve read the full job description and that you have shown how your skills, knowledge, experience, and qualifications match those outlined in the person specification.

If you have not received an invitation to interview within six weeks of the closing date, please assume that you have not been successful on this occasion.

We generally do not accept postal applications and initially invite applicants to apply for all vacancies online. If you have a disability that could make this difficult, then please email to discuss alternative arrangements. Please be aware that the closing time for submitting a job application is 23.59 GMT, although HR staff are only available to assist with queries from 9am until 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Attending an interview

If you are invited to interview we'll contact you via email as soon as possible after the shortlisting decision has been made. In this email you'll be provided with the full details about the interview including its format, directions to the campus, details of any formal assessment exercise, such as a test or presentation, and an expense form. You will be able to claim expenses for travelling to and from the interview even if you are not appointed.

While we will try to be as flexible as possible to accommodate your needs in assigning interview dates and times, the interview panel may not always be available. Therefore it's not always possible to rearrange interviews.
