Why does the Council have a long, drawn out process to follow when they advertise for a job?

The main aim of this Council is to provide a high quality, cost effective service for the community. Making sure we have the right person in the right job helps us to achieve this. We use a structured process based on ‘appointment on merit’ when we recruit and select new employees.

I’ve completed my application form but I didn’t get invited for an interview. What do I do now?

If you have not heard within 4 weeks you should assume your application is unsuccessful. If you have been unsuccessful or have not heard from us, you may want to know why.

We provide feedback opportunities where you can discuss with someone (usually the contact name in the advert) why you were not successful. They’ll point out where they thought you did not meet the necessary criteria for the job.

I’ve been asked on the application form to give names and addresses of two referees. Why does this happen and will it affect my position with my current employers?

In the majority of cases, any offer of employment is subject to satisfactory references and medical clearance. However, there is a space on the application form indicating your consent, or otherwise, for us to contact your referees.

If you wish to accept an offer of employment from us, you should not give notice to your current employer until you have received notification from us that everything is satisfactory.
