Is there any way I can receive updates of future vacancies?
We recommend that you check this website on a regular basis, as it is where we advertise all our external opportunities. You can also receive updates of our vacancies by clicking here to 'follow' us on our new LinkedIn page.
Am I suitable for the role?
Please take the time to review the job description and person specification for the role. This will enable you to have a better understanding of what the job entails, and the essential and desirable criteria that we are looking for in our prospective candidates.
What are the pay grades for support staff posts?
We pay our support staff on the single status salary scales for local government staff. You can find a copy of the scales by clicking here.
What can I expect from the recruitment process?
A panel interview always forms part of our selection process. It is a two-way process and it is as much your chance to see if we are the right fit for you as it is for us, so you will be given the opportunity to ask questions, have a tour of the college and meet some of our students and staff.
For teaching posts, a lesson observation always forms part of the recruitment process. For teaching and support roles, we may ask candidates to complete other activities as part of the process, for example undertaking a written task or a delivering a presentation. These activities are designed around the job description for the post, and candidates will usually be advised in advance of the interview day if they will be required to complete such activities.
When will I know whether my interview has been successful?
Candidates will be informed of the outcome of their interview as soon as possible. The selection panel will advise candidates of when they are likely to hear the outcome at the end of the interview.
If I am unsuccessful, can I have feedback?
We recognise that feedback can help candidates better convey their skills and experience in future applications, assist with planning their CPD or refocus their applications. Therefore we are happy to provide feedback to candidates who were interviewed but were unsuccessful. Unfortunately we are unable to offer feedback to candidates who were not shortlisted for interview due to the high number of applications we receive.
