Tips to make your application stand out

Supporting statement

Like all NHS applications, you will be asked to write a supporting statement (up to 1500 words). This is your chance to demonstrate (with examples) how you meet the person specification.

The person specification details the qualifications, skill, experience and knowledge that is required in order to be able to undertake the post.

It is important that you use the headings in the table to format your statement.

Spelling and grammar

Check and double check your application to make sure it is not littered with spelling mistakes. We need you to demonstrate that you have good written communication.

Make sure all of your details are accurate and you fill in as much detail as possible (including the questions at the end, they are scored).

Don’t wait too long

We normally have a high volume of applicants and the vacancy is likely to close early. Prepare your application as soon as possible and don’t leave it too late to submit.
