  1. I am applying for more than one job, do I need to fill out a separate application form?

    For every application you must ensure that you complete a separate application form and provide us with separate supporting documents. You cannot use one application form to apply for more than one job, however the information you complete on your initial application can be saved for you to resubmit or alter to suit subsequent posts you apply for.

  2. Can you tell me if you have received my application?

    If you apply online, once we receive your application we will send you an email to confirm receipt. You will hear from us, by email, within six weeks of the closing date to confirm the outcome of your application.

    If you have not received any communication from the College, please first check your email 'spam' or 'junk' folders as some email providers may automatically move emails received from the College's Online Recruitment System into these folders. 

  3. I havent received a response following submission of my application - what do I do?

    After submitting your application online, you will receive an email from us confirming receipt.

    If you have not received any communication from the College, please first check your email 'spam' or 'junk' folders as some email providers may automatically move emails received from the College's Online Recruitment System into these folders. 

    If you have not received any communication from us, even after checking these folders, please contact us for further information.

  4. I have made some mistakes on my application form - how can I correct them?

    Unfortunately, once you have submitted your application form online you cannot change your details. If you need to change your details please use the contacts as they appear on the site.

     

     

  5. Who should I provide as my referees?

    Your referees must be able to comment on your past employment and recent work performance in relation to the post’s selection criteria. It is advised that your most recent, direct supervisor/line manager, or if you have just completed full-time education the Head/Principal and/or Tutor is nominated as one of your referees. Do not include family members or friends. Please note: referees' details are compulsary fields on our application form.

  6. How long will I have to wait to find out if my application is successful?

    If you have applied online, we will contact you by email, within six weeks of the closing date, to confirm the outcome of your application. 

    If you have not heard from the College after this period of time, please contact us for further information.

  7. Can you send me a paper application pack?

    We would like to encourage you to apply online as the system is user friendly and simple to use. However if you would like a paper application pack these are available from:

    Human Resources, The Royal Veterinary College, Hawkshead Lane, Hatfield, Herts. AL9 7TA. 24-hour Tel/Fax: +44 (0) 1707 666 402.

    Please note the information sent to you will be exactly the same as the information on our website and you should allow at least four working days for the information to arrive.

  8. What is the Equal Opportunities Form used for?

    The College is an equal opportunity employer. It is our intention to ensure that job applicants and staff are treated solely on the basis of their merits, abilities and potential, regardless of gender, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, age*, socio-economic background, disability, religious or political beliefs, trade union membership, family circumstances, sexual orientation or other irrelevant distinction.

    The information gathered on the form is used to assist us in monitoring the effectiveness of our policy and will not be taken into consideration for short-listing and interviewing purposes. In accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, the College will seek your explicit permission should it intend to process any sensitive personal data for any reason other than Equal Opportunity purposes or exercising a legal right or obligation required by law. Sensitive data includes your racial or ethnic origin, sexual life, political beliefs, trade union membership, religious beliefs, physical or mental health and criminal offences.
