What you must consider when applying for a role:
The Job descriptions and person specifications: Have a good look at the content of the role and duties detailed in the job description (JD) and the skills, experience and competencies detailed within the person specification carefully.
The person specification will list the essential minimum levels of skill, knowledge and experience that are required for the role.
If there is a desirable list, it contains skills and knowledge that good candidates for the job would ideally posess, but are not essential. Your application will benefit if you demonstrate how you meet any of the desirable criteria.
Behavioural competencies refer to the behaviours that are important in order to perform well in the role.
Once you have submitted your application form, the recruiting panel will assess whether it meets the listed requirements.
Experience and Competencies - What you can bring to the role:
Before completing the application form ask yourself why you are interested in the role? What examples can you provide to demonstrate your suitability for the role (competence, skills, knowledge and experience)?
Include any relevant experience you have gained from your current or any previous jobs, church, community, voluntary or leisure interests, or other experiences from your daily life.
Our decision to shortlist applications is based only on the information you provide. Therefore is it important that you include clear evidence of how you feel you meet the specific requirements of the role, as detailed in the job description and person specification. If you wish to, you can also attach a copy of your CV to your application form.
If you don't show how you meet the specific requirements of the job, your application is likely to be unsuccessful.
