How to apply
We are committed to remove unconscious bias as much as possible from our recruitment process. We therefore use a platform called Be Applied which allows us to blind review applications without seeing details such as names and education details. You will be asked to write short answers to a few questions, specifically designed to test the skills we are looking for in the person specification. Your answers will be anonymised (all identifying information will be removed) and randomised. You can read more about the principles behind the blind review process here.
As part of the application process, you will still need to provide a CV but this will only be considered if you score well enough on the blind review. Please include details of two referees in your CV (we will only contact them if you are offered the position). You will also be asked to write short answers to a few questions, specifically designed to test the skills we are looking for in the person specification.
If you require any reasonable adjustments to be able to access any part of this process please do let us know by emailing email@example.com.
We are an equal opportunities and Mindful employer, and welcome applications from all — including those with lived experience of a mental health condition. We are also committed to improving employment opportunities in the charity sector for minority ethnic groups, and are particularly keen to receive applications from members of diverse ethnic communities.
