We're now recruiting for a number of roles across a variety of disciplines, so here are some tips to help you apply.

Phone: 0845 010 3512
You've found the role - what next?
At the bottom of the page of each job spec there will be a link taking you to the application.
You'll have to register with your email address if you haven't previously applied for a position with us.
Make sure you enter an email address you check regularly, as we'll use this to contact you with any updates on your application.
Once you've registered, you will need to give your basic contact details and your National Insurance number - so make sure you have this info handy.
The Civil Service is an equal opportunities employer so you'll be asked for personal information about your gender, nationality, ethnic group, disability, age, religion and sexual orientation.
These answers will be confidential and won't be seen by anyone looking at your application.
If you'd prefer not to answer some or all of these questions, you can select the ‘prefer not to say’ option.
Your CV and covering statement
You will have to upload your CV and a covering statement, to show how you meet the selection criteria and have the skills needed for the role.
This is your chance to show off, so please don't be shy!
Eligibility and previous Civil Service employment
These are a series of straightforward multiple choice questions, and should be very brief unless you're a Civil Servant, or have been one in the past.
Guaranteed interview scheme
You'll be asked questions on whether you are disabled and meet the minimum criteria for the post.
If you qualify you will be invited to an interview, under the guaranteed interview scheme.
Declaration under the rehabilitation of offenders act
You will have to answer some questions on whether you have a criminal record. Answering 'yes' won't necessarily rule you out for the role.
If nothing takes your fancy at first, be sure to have a look at a later date.
We will be advertising for more posts, so don't miss out on future possibilities, even if current ones don’t catch your eye.
All that remains to say is 'good luck'!
