The full details on how to apply will be covered in each job advert. We may only request  your CV and a single short supporting statement but please check the specific advert for the details. In your CV ensure you describe what makes you the best candidate for the role by providing your relevant skills, experience and qualifications/training for that role. We encourage you to make contact with the named contact in the advert and find out more about the role and IT in HSE before you apply.

There will also be some equal opportunities information to complete. This will be treated as confidential and used for statistical purposes. It will not be treated as part of your application or disclosed to anyone involved in assessing your application.

Next steps:

Once we have received your CV we will review it against the selection criteria and if successful, invite you to the next stage of the assessment. Depending on the role, this might be to take an online test or for an  interview (likely virtual), again the details will be in each job advert.

If you are successful then we will contact you with an offer. The offer will depend on pre-employment checks and  security clearance, in keeping with all government appointments. The checks include UK Right to Work, identity, nationality, DBS and health. If you do not already hold SC level clearance then we advise you to read more about the required criteria to satisfy this level on GOV.UK

As soon as your checks are cleared we’ll be looking at starting your employment with us in September.
