The supporting statement section should set out how your qualifications, experience and training meet each of the selection criteria. Please provide one or more paragraphs addressing each criterion using specific and concrete examples and information. The supporting statement is an essential part of the selection process and thus a failure to provide this information will mean that the application will not be considered. An answer to any of the criteria such as "Please see attached CV”, “Yes” or “No" will not be considered acceptable and will not be scored.

Anonymised Shortlisting

Anonymised shortlisting applies to all Professional Services roles.  This means that your personal information provided in your application form will not be seen by the shortlisting panel (this includes your name and address details).  Therefore, you will not be able to upload a CV or covering letter for these roles.
