Staff recruitment at New Hope Worcester

New Hope operates an equal opportunities policy for staff recruitment. Applications for positions are invited from men and women from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

All applicants for employment are required to complete a comprehensive application form detailing their employment history, qualifications and experience, together with providing information relating to their state of health.

All candidates must disclose any criminal offences and consent to an enhanced criminal records bureau check.

You can download and complete the application form attached to this page and return to New Hope with the required information. Our Equal Opportunities form is also attached at the foot of this page.
Prior to any appointment, New Hope must be in receipt of all of the following:

  • Two written references which we consider to be satisfactory; one must be from the present or most recent employer. Referees are specifically asked if they know of any reason why the applicant should not be employed to work with vulnerable children
  • A satisfactory enhanced DBS check
  • Original documentation supporting any qualifications listed in the application
  • A recent passport photograph
  • Proof of identity




Candidates who are selected for interview will be contacted and invited to attend an interview. They will receive further information including when and where the interview will take place and any assessment methods that may be used.


After interviews have taken place the successful candidate will first be offered the post verbally and that will then be confirmed in writing. The initial offer will be subject to clearances including references, medical clearance, DBS Checks and Safeguarding checks. The other candidate(s) will be informed of the outcome of their interview.


New Hope wants to ensure quality of opportunity in its recruitment and selection. If you think that you have been discriminated against during the selection process because of your race, gender, caring responsibilities, disability, gender re-assignment, age, social class, sexual orientation and religion or belief you may complain and we will look into your complaint. Complaints must be made within 72 hours of being informed of the decision to reject. Staff who have not been involved in the recruitment process will investigate the complaint.
