Applying for a job at South Ribble Borough Council
All applicants must complete an application form, we will use this to decide whether you should be shortlisted. The following advice should help you to complete the application form - either on paper or online - as effectively as possible.
Some points to bear in mind before you start
• Consider the contents of the Job Description and Application Form and study the Person Specification carefully. This outlines the type and range of skills, experience and knowledge that ideally we would like the candidate to possess or have the potential to develop.
• Try to complete your application in a concise, well-organised and positive way. Please do not send standard details of your own i.e. in the form of a curriculum vitae.
On the application form
Post applied for: make sure the full job title and department are shown on the form.
Name and address: make sure that you give clear details of your full name, address and telephone number. We will write to tell you whether you are successful or unsuccessful in your application.
Present and previous employment: starting with your current or last employer, list all the employers you have worked for, provide the job title and the period you worked for them. Check that the dates are correct and in order.
Education and Professional Qualifications: give a list of formal and informal qualifications. Information may be necessary here to assess whether you meet the required qualifications for the vacancy. Ensure nothing important has been omitted.
Relevant experience, skills, etc: this is your opportunity to tell us why you are suitable for the job. Include work-related and other relevant experience outside work such as community or voluntary work. Remember that skills and experience gained through unpaid work or work at home is often just as valuable as being in a paid job.
References: please give the name of your current or last employer where applicable. It is the Council's policy to approach current and relevant previous employers.
Finally: check your application form to ensure that all questions have been answered. If you have emailed the form to us, you will be asked to sign it if you are invited to interview.
