Job applications during COVID-19 pandemic

We are unable to accept Job Applications delivered in person to any of our premises until further notice. Applications should be submitted by email or post. Please ensure that you apply sufficient postage for the size and weight of your Application and allow extra time as postal services are currently under significant pressure.

To safeguard our Staff and Job Applicants we have made adjustments to our Recruitment processes and will be using E-mail, Telephone, Internet and Video Link to communicate with our applicants, hold Interviews and Assessments and carry our Pre-employment Checks. Candidates will be updated on the progress of their Applications at the Shortlisting, Selection and Pre-employment stages.

For further information please refer to our COVID19 webpage.

We thank you for your patience and co-operation at this very challenging time.
