How to Apply - The recruitment process at Yarlington

Part 1: Choose a job vacancy at Yarlington

Most vacancies are advertised internally and externally.  However, all applicants are treated in exactly the same way. Vacancies are always advertised on our website, twitter feed, Facebook page and other popular online job boards.

Part 2: Click on ‘Apply’

All our jobs are advertised online and require you to apply via Networx - simply click on ‘Apply’ and this will take you to Networx which will provide a step-by-step approach through the application process.  Each vacancy will have a job description and person specification.  Other information may also be included depending upon the job being advertised.

Part 3: Submit an application form

You can complete your application in stages (you can save your details so you can return to it at your convenience) and Submit when complete.  You can view the job details at any time during this process and once your application has been submitted, you will be sent by email an acknowledgement message to confirm receipt.  Attached to this will be a copy of your application for your own records.

Please read the guidance notes for each section of the application form and complete as appropriate.  Recruiting managers score applications against the job description and person specification so please ensure you provide examples of how you meet the essential and desirable criteria for the role.

Application forms remain anonymous to the recruiting managers and information containing the applicant’s personal details are removed before they are given to the recruiting manager to shortlist.

Part 4: Your application form assessment

The main part of the application form is sent to the recruiting manager.  The manager will assess and score each application against the job criteria and decide who will be selected for an interview.

Part 5: Arrange an interview

Once the selection process has been completed, we will then email successful applicants the details regarding the interview.  Unsuccessful applicants will be informed by email and all applicants will be given the opportunity to request feedback.  

Part 6: Attend the interview

Generally interviews are held by two people including the line manager. The process can include a profiling assessment, appropriate tests e.g. typing and a formal interview and/or presentation. Full details of the interview process will be set out in interview confirmation emails.
