Young Sussex is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Young Sussex is an Equal Opportunities employer. We act in accordance with all relevant equality legislation and guidance relating to race, gender, disability and employment to ensure that discrimination is eliminated and that equality of opportunity is promoted. No applicant will be discriminated against on account of their disability, and all applicants will be treated equally. However, if you have a disability, we welcome any information you wish to volunteer on adjustments we need to make to assist you at interview.
The successful applicant will be asked to complete an Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form for statistical purposes only. All answers are voluntary.
Recruitment and Selection Process
Before completing this form applicants should refer to the essential and desired criteria on the attached Person Specification. The essential criteria must be met in full for an application to be considered. This will include qualifications, experience and any other requirements needed to perform the role.
Applications will be systematically analysed to establish suitability for interview. Please be aware that incomplete application forms may be discarded. In addition to satisfying all essential criteria on the Person Specification, applicants will be scored for how they meet the desired criteria. Having filtered all applications by this method, it may be necessary to further refine the suitability selection based on subjective judgements made against information provided in the Personal Statement and throughout the application.
Unfortunately we are not always able to contact applicants to notify them if they have been unsuccessful. If you have not heard back from us within 4 weeks of the application deadline, please assume that you have been unsuccessful. However, we may chose to keep your application on file for similar or more suitable roles that may become available in the future.
