Are all jobs available on-line?

A small number of jobs, particularly in schools, are applied for off-line. The advert details will tell you what to do.

I have no internet access - how do I apply?

If you have no access via family or friends, you can access the internet via your local library/UCAN centre or in some circumstances, at the Work Shop on Newport Street. Candidates who have no access to the internet can apply for vacancies off line, by contacting the Contact Centre on 01203 333333 and requesting a hard copy job application pack to be sent in the post, you will need to confirm the job title and the department the job is in. Completed application forms should be returned to the One Stop Shop on the ground floor of the Town Hall.

When does the job close?

Each advert shows you the closing date and a box to the right-hand side of the page tells you how long is left to apply – its typically 12 noon on the closing date. If you start an application, you’ll get a reminder email to tell you when the job is closing.

What happens after I have applied?

If you apply online, you can look at My Profile on to see where your application is up to; you’ll receive notification if you have been successful and details of who to contact for feedback if you are not.
