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 CRB check
- Original documentation supporting any qualifications listed in the application
- A recent passport photograph
- Proof of identity
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU HAVE APPLIED?
Once an advertisement has closed, all application forms received will go through the short listing process. The information you provided in your statement of suitability will be assessed against the relevant items on the person specification for the post. The candidate(s) with the highest scores will be invited for interview. At least 2 members of the interview panel will be involved in creating the short list. Due to the high cost of postage, we are unable to acknowledge unsuccessful applications. If you do not hear from us within 4 weeks of the closing date, please assume you have not been shortlisted.
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, CRB 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.
