How to Apply

For all roles within the College, you will need to complete an application form on which you should use the Supporting Information pages to explain why you are interested in the role and detailing how you meet the essential requirements of the person specification that will be assessed at application stage. 

You do not need to address those criteria which will only be addressed at interview or through an assessment centre process. Please note that we are not able to accept CVs on their own, although in some cases they may be asked for in Supporting Documentation and we can only consider applications if all the documentation is complete. 

Please send your application through by completing an application form and emailing it to [email protected]  We will send you an acknowledgement of receipt within 24 hours.

Applications must be received by midnight on the closing date specified and if you are shortlisted for a position, we will then let you know when the interviews will take place. These can be at the College or remotely and we will organise accordingly.  We usually reserve the right to appoint early for exceptional candidates.

Recruitment Process

If the interview process is onsite, for some positions this will involve a tour of the campus and key tasks on the day, including a presentation, but we will let you know when each position is advertised.

If you are sending an email with any queries, please use a secure email address and put the job title in the subject line to reduce any email going into spam.

Please do contact the HR department if you wish to have an informal discussion about any role prior to completing your application form.
