Longlist & Shortlist:
You will receive an acknowledgment of your application through Audeliss. The panel will then assess all applications to select those demonstrating the best fit to the role by considering the evidence you have provided against the criteria set out in the ‘Person Specification’ section. Failure to address any or all of these may affect your application.
The timeline later in this pack indicates the date by which decisions are expected to be made, and all longlisted and shortlisted candidates will be advised of the outcome as soon as possible thereafter.
Candidates selected for longlisting will be invited for an interview with Audeliss to further explore their skills and experience. Following the completion of all the preliminary interviews, the panel will meet again to further assess candidates on the longlist, utilising the additional insight provided by Audeliss and will agree a shortlist for interview.
If you are shortlisted, you will be asked to take part in a series of assessments which could include psychometric tests and a staff engagement exercise. These assessments will not result in a pass or fail decision. Rather, they are designed to support the panel’s decision making and highlight areas for the panel to explore further at interview.
You will be asked to attend a panel interview in order to have a more in-depth discussion of your previous experience and professional competence in relation to the criteria set out in the Person Specification. This interview is likely to also involve a 5-minute presentation on a topic to be confirmed.
You may also have the opportunity to speak to Penny Ciniewicz prior to the final interview to learn more about the role and the organisation. Please note this will not be part of the formal assessment process.
If you are shortlisted, you will be asked to attend an interview in order to have a more in-depth discussion of your previous experience and professional competence. We will also ask you to prepare a 5 minute verbal presentation. Details will be issued in advance of your interview.
If shortlisted, applicants will need to be willing to undertake a Financial Probity check. Full details of the interview process will be made available to shortlisted candidates. The interview will take place via video link (full instructions will be issued).
Regardless of the outcome, we will notify all candidates as soon as possible. We will send you a copy of any report for any assessment that you may have undergone as part of the recruitment process (where applicable).
Feedback will only be provided if you attend an interview or assessment.
