The online application process

In order for us to get to know you and see if we are right for you, you will need to upload a copy of your CV when you apply so we can see which skills and experience you can bring to the job.  

Filling in an online application form

Once your CV is ready to send to us you will need to fill in a short, simple application form on our careers pages. You'll find the apply button at the bottom of the vacancy you're interested in.

To apply, you need to quickly create an account by entering your email address and coming up with a password.

Once you've answered the application pages and attached a copy of your CV, your work is done. You can sit back and wait for us to do the rest!

What do we do with your application?

When you send your application form and CV to us, you'll receive an email to confirm that you've successfully applied. We aim to respond to everyone within two weeks to discuss whether or not we can offer you an interview.

The interview process

If you are offered an interview, we will call or email to arrange a suitable time for you to come in to meet our managers to chat about your interest in the role and answer some more questions about yourself.

On some occasions, if you've applied to become a support worker, managers may ask to see you again for a second-stage interview involving people we support. This gives you a chance to meet a person we support and see the sort of things that happen within our busy services.

Final steps

If you're successful, we'll need you to provide us with a few things before you can start, so we'll send you some forms to fill in at the appropriate time.

To come on-board with us you will need to provide:

  • Proof of your legal right to work in the UK (your passport/proof of residence within the UK)
  • Your bank details and NI number (so we can pay you and make sure you pay the correct amount of tax)
  • Where relevant, a completed copy of a Rehabilitation of Offenders form (any declaration of an offence/conviction will be considered individually and treated with the strictest confidence)
  • A satisfactory DBS check (all employees who work directly with people we support need to have this check by law. We'll pay for and send this off on your behalf)
  • A completed Health Questionnaire (so we can provide you with as much support at work as you need, if any)
  • Two satisfactory references (one must be your current or most recent employer).
