We believe in recruiting and promoting fairly based on merit and so will appoint the best person for the role.
Due to the seasonal nature of some of our work, some roles are offered on a permanent seasonal contract and we tend to recruit for these at the start of the year. Seasonal roles allow you to experience working life in our outstanding education centres throughout the core working season and have time off over the winter to concentrate on other things, e.g. travel, secure in the knowledge that you have a job to come back to. If this appeals to you, please submit an application!
How to Apply
It is vitally important that we recruit the right people, to the right role, at the right time. With this in mind, we follow a recruitment and selection process that is applied fairly, consistently, and without favour or prejudice, and which promotes a working environment in which diversity is recognised, valued and encouraged. The selection methods that we use for recruitment are related to the requirements of the job and applicants are shortlisted/selected solely on the basis of their assessed capability to undertake the role.
If you have any difficulties with our application process, require the application form or any other documents in a different format, or require a reasonable adjustment or other assistance to participate in the recruitment process, e.g. due to disability, please contact our Human Resources Department on 01743 852138.
To apply you will need to submit an application form via our online system – Here. This is your opportunity to tell us about yourself and why you feel you are the best person for the role, therefore it is essential that you use the information provided in the job description/person specification (which can be found on each vacancy listed via the above link) to assess your suitability and complete the form as fully as possible ensuring that you demonstrate why your skills, experiences and abilities make you a suitable applicant. Short-listing decisions will be made objectively based on the information you provide, so give examples of how you meet the requirements of the post and remember that voluntary work, taking on responsibilities at school/college, and work at home can be just as relevant as paid employment.
Process/What Happens Next
Once you have submitted your application you should receive email confirmation that it has been received. After the closing date, all applications will be submitted to a short-listing panel who will assess the information provided on the application form against the requirements of the job.
If you are selected for interview, we will contact you by email to make the necessary arrangements and to provide you with details of any documentation that you need to provide e.g. ID, qualification certificates, etc, and if there are any selection tests relevant to the role that you might need to prepare for as part of the interview process. Our interviews are normally conducted by a panel of at least two people. You will have the opportunity to ask questions about the role and meet potential colleagues. We will also let you know when you can expect to hear back from us with the outcome of the interview.
Offers of Employment
All offers of employment are made subject to satisfactory employment checks. In addition, we also require that you:
- provide original certificate(s) confirming that you hold the relevant qualifications for the role (as listed within the vacancy pack)
