Frequently Asked Questions

If you have made an application for a specific job we will consider your information carefully before making a decision whether to take you forward to interview stage. We may contact you to arrange a telephone interview or to raise any queries we have with you. If we feel you do not match the profile we need for the role then we will notify you of our decision. We will also ask you whether you would like us to keep your details in our database so that you can be considered for future roles.

If you have forgotten your password please select the Forgotten Password link and we will issue you with a new password by email. If you are locked out of the system please use the Freshchat chatbot located in the bottom left of the page, and we will unlock your account and advise you.

When registering for a new account or setting up a new vacancy alert you must first verify your email address by clicking the link that we send you during registration. This allows us to confirm ownership of your email address to prevent malicious users from registering your email or leveraging it to send phishing emails to your email account.

As you are completing your online application form, please bear in mind that our system has automatic time-outs built in. You will be logged out of the system after 60 minutes of inactivity (i.e. not clicking on links or 'save and exit' buttons on the sections of the application form) and you may lose information which has not been saved. Therefore, please save your information regularly by clicking 'save and exit'. We also recommend that you compose your answers to longer questions, (i.e. those with free text areas) off-line in a word processing package and then copy and paste your answers into the form. This ensures that you can spell check your text and that you have a backup version of your answers.
