FAQs and help
How do I view the job description and person specification?
We are making some changes to our recruitment service.
Vacancies that opened before 7 August 2018
Vacancies that opened before 7 August are advertised in the HireWire job board. To view our HireWire job board and download the job descriptions and person specifications, a 30 second registration process is required. HireWire will ask you to register by indicating your name, email address, and confirming a password. Please note that this information will be kept strictly confidential.
The job description and person specification documents (also known as the job pack or further details documents in some instances) provide more specific information about the post in which you have an interest. A summary of the terms and conditions of service will be included.
If you can not open these documents, then you may not have the correct software installed. Please see our help with downloading documents page for help. Documents can be provided in alternative formats such as large print, Braille, tape, and on CD, upon request to the Human Resources department.
Vacancies opening from 7 August 2018
To search for vacancies opening from 7 August, please visit our new recruitment website.
In our new system, called CoreHR, you do not need to register your details before viewing or downloading the job description nor any other documents related to the vacancy. You will be asked to register your details only when you decide to apply for one of our vacancies.
