Confirming your identity, evidence of eligibility to work in the UK and qualifications
In accordance with the requirements of the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006, if you are appointed to a position you will be required to produce evidence of your eligibility to work in the UK. In addition to this, we will need to see original qualification certificates (where applicable) and proof of your identity.
Stage 1: Application
You may submit an application form in respect of a current vacancy or submit a speculative application. If you have sent a speculative application, we will hold your details on file for a maximum of six months until a suitable vacancy arises. Your application will then form part of our short-listing process.
Stage 2: Contacted
Successful applicants will be short-listed and contacted as soon as possible after the closing date. This would normally be within three weeks of the closing date. Due to the high number of applications received, regrettably we cannot reply to every applicant. If you have not heard from us within 28 days of the closing date, your application has been unsuccessful.
Stage 3: Interview
Getting the right person is extremely important to us. As part of your interview, you may be asked to carry out a presentation/task and complete an assessment. Details will be provided in your invitation letter to attend an interview.
Stage 4: Confirmation
Confirmation letters will follow for both successful and unsuccessful interviewees.
Whatever the outcome of your application, thank you for the interest you have shown in working for Performance Through People.
