Here are some helpful tips on our application process.

How to apply

To be considered for a role, you will need to create an online account using our Online Recruitment Platform, which can be accessed through our Job Vacancies page. The website can be accessed via your desktop or mobile device.

Once you have created your online account, you will be able to apply for a role, track your application, view other vacancies and sign up for future job alerts.

The advert will include the closing date for your application. However, we encourage you to submit your application at the earliest opportunity as the closing date may be brought forward at any time.

We are sorry but we can’t accept speculative applications.

 

 

What to include in your application

You will be asked to complete a short application form, attach your CV and submit a supporting statement.

Your supporting statement is the first chance to promote yourself and allows you to briefly explain:

· Why you are interested in applying for the role.

· How your skills, knowledge and experience meet the requirements listed on the person specification.

Your CV should be clear, accurate and up to date. You should write your CV to highlight how your skills match the role you're applying for. It should outline your:

  • Experience.
  • Organisations.
  • Job titles and dates.
  • Skills, knowledge, experience and qualifications.

 

 

Anonymisation

We are committed to being an inclusive organisation where people can make a full contribution and where we value a diverse range of views. As part of this commitment any personal and sensitive information will be automatically removed from your CV. This ensures fairness and consistency in selecting the best candidate for the role.

Our Vacancy Pack will include the likely dates of when the interviews will be held.

We’ll usually invite you to interview via email. Where possible, we like to hold all our interviews in person, rather than remote. We appreciate this is an important two-way process, and being in person, allows you to visit our office in Granta Park and meet with potential future colleagues.

We’ll send the formal interview confirmation via email. We’ll include the necessary information you need to prepare, including:

· Address.

· Start time.

· Who you will be meeting with.

· How long you will spend with us.

· Any task details, if relevant.

The interview will be competency based and we’ll ask you for specific examples and experiences you’ve had which demonstrate the skills and competences required for the role.

Make sure you have enough time to prepare for your interview. To prepare for an interview, it’s important to:

· Read the Vacancy Pack carefully and understand what knowledge, experience, skills and personal attributes we are looking for.

· Do some research on our website.

· Review your CV and supporting statement and think about what the interview panel might ask you.

· Prepare some examples from your past experiences to demonstrate you have the knowledge, experience, skills and personal attributes outlined in the person specification. You can refer to these in your interview.

There will be time at the end of the interview for you to ask some of your own questions. These might be about the role or Alzheimer’s Research UK. You could think of some questions when researching us.

If you require any adjustments ahead of your interview to allow this to be more accessible for you, please include this information on your application so we can support you.
