Planning your application

Before you make your application, you should carefully read the job advert and assure yourself that you can provide sufficient evidence of the criteria listed. It is worth noting that anyone who is deemed unable to provide sufficient evidence against the criteria listed in the job advert within their application, will not progress to any following stages.  Only candidates who are deemed to have provided sufficient evidence against each criteria being tested (which for the purposes of the Disability Confident Interview Scheme is the minimum criteria for the grade) may progress beyond the initial first stage. 

You should plan the completion of your application; being mindful of the closing date for the vacancy, as this is a fixed date that will not be negotiated (except where a reasonable adjustment is appropriate and has been agreed beforehand).

How to apply

To apply, you will be asked to register for an account on the Welsh Government on-line system using an email address. It is recommended that you select an email address to which only you have access to and one which you can always access, as this will be our main method of communication with you regarding the selection process.

If you have an impairment or health condition or use British Sign Language and need to discuss reasonable adjustments for any part of this recruitment process, or wish to discuss how we will support you if you were to be successful, please email as soon as possible and a member of the team will contact you to discuss your concerns and requirements. 

We welcome applications in Welsh and English for most adverts however for some Welsh Essential roles, only applications in Welsh will be accepted. Please ensure you have understood what is required of you from the advert. Where applications in either language are accepted, they will be treated on the same basis. To access the Welsh version of a vacancy, select Newid Iaith.  If you would like to apply in Welsh, select Gwneud Cais. Please note, once you start an application in Welsh, you are not able to switch to an English application for that post, using the same user account.  If you experience any difficulties, or have any questions regarding the process, please contact Shared Service Helpdesk.
