What happens next?

Interviews are usually held between 1 week and 1 month of the closing date for applications. We may contact your referees prior to the interview so that their written opinion can be available at interview. This will include a reference from your current employer.

If you have not received a letter/phone call inviting you for interview within a week of applying for the post, please presume you have not been successful.

If your application is successful, your appointment will be subject to an Enhanced DBS Disclosure application.
