How to apply – TfGM

Important advice on completing your application

The decision to invite you for longlist (first) interview is based on the information you give in your application. Available via this website, you can access a Role Profile which describes the job and the person specification for the post – provided when you fill out the entry fields with brief details on each role’s specific webpage: Chief Network Officer. You should read the webpage and the Role Profile carefully as the information will help you to decide if you wish to apply for the job. The Key Role Outputs (KRO) and Compulsory Outputs (CO) list the Objectives and Duties of the role, followed by the Person Specification which lists the Qualifications and Experience, the Knowledge and Skills and the Personal Attributes needed to do the job.

The Qualifications and Experience items are only those which candidates should respond to in their supporting statement. This statement will be used during the assessment of written applications to select longlisted candidates, so those taken forward to first technical interviews. Then the full list of items (therefore the Knowledge, Skills and Attributes) will be referred to during all interviews and assessments.

Please see further information in the tabs below to help you produce your best application. We have provided advice to help you to produce a good application. Please take your time to review this before submitting your application. The advice will enable you to maximise the impact of your application.
