Questions about LCC recruitment

Do I have to apply online?

Can I apply for a job on the closing date?

Yes, you can still apply so long as your application reaches us before midnight of the closing date.

What happens to my application form after the closing date?

All the application forms we receive for a post are sent to the Hiring Manager after the closing date. The manager will then shortlist to select which candidates to invite for interview.

How long will I have to wait before I know if I have been shortlisted or not?

If you have not heard anything from us within 4 weeks, please assume that your application has been unsuccessful.

Do my references have to be requested before my interview?

All references are requested after a conditional offer has been made.

Do my references have to be from a previous employer or can I provide a character reference?

Candidates must supply full contact details for a minimum of two referees. One referee must be your last employer however if you have never had an employer one referee must be a senior staff member from your last place of study. A referee must not be a relative or partner. If you cannot meet the criteria outlined above you can supply a character reference from a professional person.

If the position you are applying for is to work with children or vulnerable adults and subject to a DBS check then one referee should be able to refer to your most recent work with children or vulnerable adults.
