The Job Description and Person Specification are available to all job applicants together with the application form. They must be a clear representation of the job and the skills, experience and other attributes required to perform the role competently.

The relevant Job Description and Person Specification with the terms and conditions that apply to the post; b. Job Application form; c. Information on the date and format of the selection process where available. d. The Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy: Information will be made available to candidates in alternative formats.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
