Applying for jobs

When you have access to the Redeployment jobs site you will need to look for jobs that you think you might be suited to. You can also set up job alerts so you get an email every time a job that might be suitable is advertised on Redeployment.

The Redeployment portal guide (link below) will help you to login, search and apply for jobs, set up job alerts and change your password.

When you apply for a job you will need to upload your skills profile and a supporting statement. You don’t have to submit a CV but they are recommended for academic and senior professional and managerial jobs.

You should tailor the statement to the job by describing how your knowledge, skills, and experience demonstrate the criteria in the person specification.

It may be helpful to use the criteria as headings in your statement and write a paragraph or two to describe how you meet each one, using examples where you can.

Remember that this is your chance to tell the hiring manager how well you meet the specification and to sell yourself. Make sure you proof read your statement and think about asking someone else to check it.

The hiring manager will go through your statement to see if you meet at least 70% of the essential criteria. If there is a potential match Redeployment will be in touch to arrange an interview. If you aren’t a match Redeployment will be in touch to give you feedback.
