We have a standard recruitment process to ensure all applicants are treated fairly and equally.
Once a vacancy reaches its closing date we will create a shortlist using the job description and person specification. Candidates should therefore demonstrate that they meet at least the essential criteria.
We aim to contact those who have been shortlisted as soon as possible for either an initial pre-screen call, or a panel interview.
Unfortunately, due to the volume of applicants that we receive for our roles we will be unable to advise or provide feedback on applications if you have not been shortlisted for interview.
All roles require an interview prior to appointment, and these are normally conducted by a panel including the line manager and other senior employees close to the role.
The interview process varies between roles but will involve competency questions and can involve a presentation or task. Further details regarding the interview format, as well as interview time and location will be provided by email to those who are shortlisted. Confirmation of attendance must be sent via return email ahead of the date of interview. Certain roles may involve further interviews.
Unfortunately, due to the panels’ diary constraints it is not always possible to offer alternative interview dates, but we will do our best to accommodate where possible.
Once interviews are complete and a candidate is chosen we will then issue a conditional offer of employment, subject to Right to Work, satisfactory references, DBS check etc.
We will ask you to accept the offer in writing and provide requested details to allow a smooth process to start employment at UCFB.
