Applying for a job
Before applying for a job please ensure you meet the Civil Service nationality and immigration eligibility requirements.
You should read the job description/person specification and the general information for applicants sheet carefully in order to ensure you are suitably qualified for the job.
If you have applied online, you will receive an onscreen message confirming receipt of your application. If you apply by post you will not be sent confirmation but we will write to tell you the outcome of your application.
For more help on applying online please see our frequently asked questions.
Successful applicants will be short listed for interview. If you are short-listed we will write to you with the interview details. You may be asked to prepare additional material for the interview. We will tell you what is required by letter in advance of the interview date.
Interviews are based on our competency framework. We will look for evidence from you to support your level of competence in the areas identified in the person specification.
Appointments are confirmed by letter after all our pre-employment checks on references, health and security have been satisfactorily completed. This letter contains the terms and conditions of employment.
