Our recruitment process is designed to be both fair and consistent. As a result, we don’t accept CVs or any other supporting material unless you are specifically asked to provide it. If you are interested in applying for a job then you must complete an online application.
There is nothing to stop you from making multiple applications. Be sure your personal statement is tailored to reflect the requirements of each job.
You are able to make changes to your application if you haven’t submitted it and the closing date has not passed.
If you wish to make changes to a submitted application you are only able to do so by deleting your application and submitting a new one. You will not be able to do this once the closing date has passed.
If you have submitted an application and no longer wish to be considered for the position, please email email@example.com quoting the job reference.
If you experience any difficulties with our recruitment system please contact us on 01970 633949.
We appreciate that disabled applicants can face additional challenges to gaining employment and we are committed to promoting employment opportunities for people with disabilities. As part of this commitment we have gained ‘Disability Confident Employer’ accreditation. More information about this can be found here.
We are a bilingual organisation and as such some jobs have a Welsh language requirement. If this is the case it will be noted in the person specification. Further details regarding Welsh language standards, including how we support our people to learn Welsh, can be found here.
Because of our commitment to treating the Welsh and English language equally job applications may be submitted in either language. Your language choice will not result in your application being treated less favourably.
You also have the right to choose your language preference for interview. If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
If you do not have access to a computer, you can access one at any of our libraries.
We pride ourselves on being an inclusive employer. What we’re looking for is potential. We don’t believe a criminal record is necessarily a reason to reject your application.
Everybody will need to show us proof of age and right to work in the UK. We may need to see other documents too. This will depend on the job you’ve applied for. For example, qualifications, driver’s license etc.
Requests for documentation form part of the pre-employment checks process. It is important that you don’t resign from your current job until the pre-employment checks are complete.
If your application has been successful, we will send you an email to let you know. We aim to do this within 14 days of the closing date but sometimes this can take a little bit longer.
Interview dates are often noted on our job adverts so that you can keep the date free. For the majority of posts those invited to interview will be sent an email which will contain a link to our recruitment system to allow you to book an interview slot that suits you. It is likely that limited slots will be provided so try and book early so you have greater choice!
If you’ve already booked your slot and this is no longer convenient please contact us.
To prepare for the interview, re-read the job description and person specification. The interview panel will have chosen their questions by referring to these.
If your interview is successful we will let you know as soon as possible, usually by phone. If you’re unsuccessful, and we have been unable to reach you by phone, you might be notified by email or in writing.
We appreciate that feedback following interview is useful. You can get feedback by contacting the recruiting manager. Alternatively you can contact us and we can arrange it for you.
Your information is held securely and treated in confidence. Until you submit an application, the information you provide will not be made accessible to the recruiting manager. When you have submitted an application, the information provided will be used to assess your suitability for the post according to the requirements noted in the person specification.
Any equal opportunities information completed during the application process will not be forwarded to the recruiting manager or interview panel.
The information you provide will be held for 12 months and then destroyed unless you are appointed. If you are appointed the information will be used as part of your employee record. The information will be kept and used in line with GDPR and Data Protection . More information about how we keep and use your personal information and how to contact the Data Protection Officer can be found here.
