Can I send in my speculative CV?

  • Unfortunately we don’t accept speculative applications. If our current vacancies aren’t suitable for you, we recommend that you sign up for our job alerts which will notify you via email when new roles become available. 

Do I still need to complete my employment and education history?

  • If you’ve uploaded a CV, there’s no need to complete the employment and education history fields. If you don’t have a CV or are based in Northern Ireland, please complete the employment and education history. 

What time do applications close?

  • Applications close at 23:59 on the date specified for the individual job vacancy. Make sure that you’ve clicked ‘submit’ before this time to ensure your application is accepted.

I’m having problems submitting my application.

  • If you’re unable to complete your application or are having any technical problems with our careers website please call 0370 240 0274. 

Can I apply for more than one role at a time?

  • You absolutely can apply to more than one role at any one time. And your CV submitted for each role is the CV that the Hiring Manager will see.

How can I check the progress of my application?

  • You can check what stage your application is at by logging into your profile on our careers site. If it’s taking longer than you’d expected to receive an update on your application, please contact the property/department directly.

The job search isn’t loading, what can I do?

I can’t log in to my account

Getting some work experience

  • Volunteering in your spare time is a great way of gaining hands-on experience in your chosen field – you can also take part in volunteering holidays to fit around current work commitments. It may be worth looking into relevant courses, whether full-time, part-time or evening. Alternatively, applying for an entry level role and working your way up is another great way into a career, and we’ll support your development at every step of the way.
