Each advert contains details of closure dates, shortlisting/interview time-frames, and instructions on how & where to return your completed application form to.
It is important that you complete the correct application form (see below). We will discard applications submitted on an incorrect application form or those intended for other Schools/organisations, or application forms that are incomplete or incorrect and without two references.
All positions are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974: if you have been convicted of a criminal offence, you must supply details (offence, date and sentence) along with your application. In keeping with safer recruitment processes, we may carry out an online search on shortlisted candidates as part of our due diligence. This may help identify any incidents or issues that have happened, that are publicly available online, which we might want to explore with the applicant. In the event of a successful application, further safeguarding checks will be conducted, including an enhanced DBS disclosure and further Disqualification/’Disqualification by Association’ declaration checks. Any job offer made is always conditional, subject to the satisfactory completion of the above safeguarding measures, timely positive reference returns and passing a probationary period. Please note that this Academy Trust does not accept CVs under any circumstances.
We wish you the best of luck with your application.
When applying for any job vacancy, we offer the following general advice:
Ensure you have looked at the salary which is provided on each advert (you’d be surprised at how many people overlook this). Be sure you’ll know how much you’ll earn, as unlike within the private sector, we do not negotiate salaries.
We strongly advise prior visits to our School by appointment. Visiting beforehand suggests that you have a genuine interest in our School and that you have taken the time to tailor your application form to reflect our setting. It will give you a deeper insight into how we work, which you would draw upon at interview, should you be shortlisted.
Make sure that you have used the correct application form (we don’t accept LBBD application forms); and that there are no gaps or omissions in your application. You should account for all periods of employment, including periods of non-employment (for example, if studying or bringing up a family).
Check your application form is completed correctly; check for spelling mistakes, typos, grammatical errors and correct punctuation.
Make sure your phone number is correct and during the short-listing period, you keep an eye on your phone and that – at the very least – you have voicemail activated (check for messages).
Remember, if you have been convicted of a criminal offence, you must supply details (offence, date and sentence) within the application form and your cover letter.
We tell candidates at the point of interview of the time-frame for being informed about whether or not they are successful in their application. (Usually by the end of the next working day).
Make sure you want the job and are a firm candidate! Should you be shortlisted, we will ask you at the beginning of the interview to confirm whether you would accept the post should you be successful in your application. No employer wants to appoint a candidate, only to find that they have been “gazumped” at the point of job offer. It wastes a lot of time and inconveniences other candidates too.
If you do have any questions about the post, it’s a good idea to call us ahead of applying or being shortlisted.
