Read through the relevant Information Pack (London or Nottingham) and submit the following application:
- Covering Letter
- Show how you meet the person specification.
- Please provide concrete examples of how your experience applies to the role.
- Don’t assume that we know anything about you, the things you have done, or the organisations you have previously worked for – give details.
- Think outside the box – demonstrate your transferable skills
- No longer than two pages
- Please include the names of two references
- Refer to our guidance notes on writing a good CV for more advice
In order to get a good sense of your passion and enthusiasm, we’d like you to also submit a 30 second video CV telling us why you would be a good candidate for the GIP
- Video CV (you can use any recording device e.g. phone, laptop, camera), etc
- Keep the content concise, think of it as an elevator pitch
- Don’t forget to smile
- Upload it onto YouTube and share the link (video can be made private if you wish)
Please email your completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org with “GIP” as the email subject
If you pass the first round you receive a call from a member of the team to conduct a telephone interview, talking through your application.
A successful telephone interview will be followed by an invitation to a face to face made up of two parts:
- Competency- based interview
- In order to get a good sense of your passion and enthusiasm, we’d like you to also submit a 30 second video CV telling us why you would be a good candidate for the GIP. Upload it onto YouTube and share the link (video can be made private if you wish)
- What should you include in your video CV? You need to keep the content concise, much like an elevator pitch. You will only have their attention for about 30 seconds so make it count by focusing on what is most relevant about you. A lot of what you communicate is through body language so think about how you are sitting, eye contact, tone of voice and what you are wearing. Try to enjoy recording it and make sure you prepare for it as if it were an interview; a video CV can often act as one.
