Where do I send in my application form?


Candidates should submit application forms online. In order to submit your application form electronically, please register and login first. You can register on any jobs page. You will then be able to upload your application form/s online. If you have a disability that prevents you from submitting this form then either a pre-prepared typed CV, tape or computer disk would be acceptable via post.

Can I apply for more than one vacancy?

If your skillset meets the job criteria for more than one vacancy, then yes. However, please remember to use the correct job title for each job you apply for.

Will I be notified if I am not successful?


Yes, we will notify you via the email address which you registered with, when you applied for the vacancy if you have not been successful. Successful applicants will be notified via letter. Whether you have been successful or not, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the interest you have taken in the advertised post.
