Applying

Send your CV, cover letter and completed Equal Opportunities Monitoring & Rehabilitation of Offenders forms to recruitmentsupport@havant.gov.uk.

Please include the job reference in the subject line of your email to us.

After the closing date

Once the deadline for applications has passed, the recruiting manager will assess applications and decide who to invite for interview.

Due to the current employment climate we are receiving a high number of applicants for each post and as such may not be able to acknowledge receipt of your application.

If you are successful, you will be contacted to let you know you have been shortlisted for interview.

Your invitation to interview will be emailed through to you with the date, time and any other information you may require.

The interview will take place via Microsoft Teams. An email invitation to the Teams call will be sent to you once you have confirmed your availability.

On your interview day

The recruitment process you can expect will be detailed to you in advance of the day.

Please have your right to work documentation available for the interview, to be able to show the panel.

Information on acceptable forms of evidence is available on the GOV.uk website.

The interviewing panel will introduce themselves, and ask you questions about your experience and how you are suited to the job.

It's decision time

If your application and interview has resulted in a positive outcome, you will be contacted by the recruiting manager.

Congratulations and welcome to the team! Confirmation of this decision will then be emailed to you along with instructions on how to arrange a start date and your contract will follow.

If your application has not been successful on this occasion, this will be confirmed to you by email. Thank you for applying to work with us.
