The job description, person specification and other relevant documents can be found by downloading the application pack for each individual post and these provide information about the job for which you are applying as well as general information that will be helpful to you. Please read these documents carefully and ensure that your application details the ways in which you meet the requirements of the role.
The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s application form should be submitted electronically. If you require an application form in an alternative format, please firstname.lastname@example.org. You must only submit a completed application, CV’s will not be considered.
When shortlisting, the Panel will use a matrix drawn up using the essential (key) criteria in the Person Specification. Make sure all sections are completed. Lack of information may result in you not being shortlisted as the Panel are only able to select based on the information provided.
Be concise when addressing the criteria as there is a word limit of 250 words per criteria. Criteria can often be adequately addressed using a well-rounded example of how you have demonstrated the requirement in your current or previous roles. The STAR technique is a useful tool for this:
S = Situation – what was the situation or background?
T = Task – what was your individual task?
A = Action – what action did you specifically take?
R = Result – what was the result or outcome?
References are always taken up and factual details such as dates of employment are carefully checked. Please ensure that the information you provide is accurate and if you are not sure, check. Giving false information can disqualify your application and lead to withdrawal of a job offer or termination of employment if you have taken up the post.
