Job Application Guidance Notes
The Job Application Guidance Notes and all the versions of the Job
Application Forms comply with the Equality Act 2010.
It is considered good practice to exclude information such as Date of
Birth, and dates in relation to previous employment from Job Application
Form(s). Candidates are requested, however, to provide information about
material gaps in their employment history.
The Personal Details section of the Job Application Forms have also been
amended so that there is no direct request for information that might
distinguish candidates on the basis of sex. Both these updates to the Job
Application Form(s) have been reflected in the Guidance Notes.
These guidance notes should be sent out (with the Equality and Diversity /
Equal Opportunity Recruitment Monitoring form) to applicants with the
Application Form to help applicants complete the form.
These Job Application Guidance Notes contain explanations in respect of the
following sections of the Application Forms:-
2. Education and Professional Qualifications
3. Present Post
4. Previous Employment
5. Relevant Skills, Abilities, Knowledge and Experience
6. Other information
9. Return Address
