I’ve seen a vacancy that looks perfect for me. How do I apply?
If you would like to apply for a vacancy, please click ‘Apply Now’ to read the job description and person specification. You will then need to register for an account to apply for our vacancies. This is an easy process that only requires your name and email address to begin. You will then be guided through an application form with instructions at each step.
If you are struggling to complete the online form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be happy to help. Please note that we do not accept CVs unless clearly stated in the job advert, and keep in mind that we score applications based on the Person Specification for the role, so ensure you relate your answers to this. You can apply for multiple vacancies at any time.
Will I need any checks before I am employed?
Yes. We will conduct a series of pre-employment checks following a conditional offer of employment. These may vary depending upon the role but, legally, all employees need to demonstrate evidence of the right to work in the UK, and many of our posts require an Enhanced DBS check and two satisfactory professional references.
For night working roles, or if you declare any ongoing health issues, you may also be encouraged to attend an occupational health check. As we conduct these checks, we will keep you informed of the progress. However, the checks can take between 2-8 weeks to complete.
If I am unsuccessful, will I receive feedback?
We will provide feedback when requested following interviews. However, we do not provide feedback on application forms. If you have not heard from us within 3 weeks of the closing date for a vacancy, then please assume you have not been successfully shortlisted.
Will you hold my application on file?
Application forms will be kept for 6 months following submission. After this time, they will be deleted in line with our retention policy as well as compliance with the Data Protection Act 2018.
What is your Equal Opportunities Policy and how does it affect me?
Nottinghamshire YMCA is committed to a policy of equal opportunities in the provision of services and as an employer. We strive to support all candidates and staff with any reasonable adjustments they may need and we welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
We also welcome feedback upon ways we can improve our processes. Please contact email@example.com you would like to comment on our processes in relation to equal opportunities, or anything else that you have seen on our website.
