not just a desk job

CIH Scotland

Application form

Applications vary depending on the organisation, but there are some general rules to remember.

  • Take the time to read the job description carefully, and ensure that you relate your experience and skills to the person specification.
  • Complete a rough draft first and keep a copy so you can look over it prior to the interview.
  • Complete your application form clearly in black ink, type or online.
  • Take care to complete all the sections. If you think a section doesn’t apply to you, write n/a.
  • Check and double check you’ve completed all the sections and that there aren’t any spelling or grammatical errors.
  • Ensure you send your application in time to reach the organisation before the closing date.
  • Only send your CV if requested.

I like the interesting nature of the work, the people and job security.
