Flow Chart A

There are seven key stages to our application process. You can expect it to take about 12 weeks to progress through them from the point of submitting a full application form.

  1. Register your interest to receive notifications by email as and when suitable vacancies become available.
  2. You'll be invited to complete the online application form.
  3. Our Senior Recruitment Team will review your application to ensure that you have evidenced the essential skills, qualifications and experience.
  4. If you meet the criteria we're looking for, your application will be reviewed by inspection colleagues.
  5. If your application is successful, we’ll contact you to arrange an assessment or a telephone interview to discuss your knowledge and experience.
  6. You'll be invited to the final selection stage, which may encompass written and presentation tasks and/or a final panel interview chaired by the relevant Regional Director.
  7. We'll offer the role to successful candidates – and provide feedback to you if you haven't been successful.
