Your application
Once you have searched our vacancies and found a job you would like to apply for, read all the guidance on this page carefully. 

To apply for a job, you must complete an application form on Trac Jobs. 

  • Please click on the vacancy for more information

  • Then click on the "Apply online now" tab at the bottom of the page

This ensures that everyone gives information in the same format and allows us to assess your application in a standard way. Please fill in the form as fully and accurately as possible.

We will not take into account any previous applications that you have sent us or anything we already know about you.

Completing your application

Try to complete all parts of the application form. If some sections of the form do not apply to you, enter N/A (not applicable) in the spaces provided. 

Almost all communication during the recruitment process is via email and text so it is important that you supply a correct email address and mobile phone number if you have one.

  • Job descriptions

Each job we advertise is based on a job description and person specification. The job description lists the main types of duties and responsibilities of the post. The person specification outlines the skills, knowledge, experience and qualifications that you will need for the job.

Read these documents thoroughly and take a look at the Trust values, as well as any other information provided. Once you understand the requirements, please ensure your application accurately reflects where you match them. We shortlist applicants against the job description and person specification, so give examples to demonstrate how your skills and experience are relevant to the job you are applying for and how and where you have used them.

Provide information on any relevant experience from your present or previous jobs. You can include skills and experience gained from community or voluntary work, work experience, leisure interests and activities in the home.   

  • Education and training

Tell us about your education and the training you have received. 

  • Supporting information

Do not ignore the supporting information section of the form. It is an important part of the application, because you can tell us about you, your qualifications and experience.    

  • References

More information about choosing your references can be found here

  • Submitting your application

Once you have completed the form, please remember to proofread it and check that you have answered each section as fully as possible. 

Submit your application and keep a copy, to help you prepare if you are shortlisted for an interview.

  • Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults

The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

All posts working with vulnerable groups will be subject to an enhanced criminal records check upon appointment and staff will need to give their consent for the Trust to receive regular updates on their criminal records status throughout their employment.
