Further details about the role
Please note that new guidance in Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022 requires us to carry out an online search as part of our due diligence on shortlisted candidates. This to enable us to identify any incidents or issues which have happened and are publicly available online which we might want to explore at interview. Once shortlisting has taken place, this search will be carried out for all candidates who will attend an interview.
All applicants must be permitted to work in the UK and hold a relevant work permit where necessary. This is not a role in which the Trust sponsors a visa application.Unless applicants make clear on their application form that they have the right to work in the UK by responding to the relevant question and providing their National Insurance Number, we are unable to consider their application and, due to the high volume of applications, may be unable to enter into correspondence with them. We expect applicants to provide this confirmation in order for their application to be considered, otherwise they will not be eligible for the vacancy. If you have lived or worked outside of the UK in the last 5 years, the Trust will also require additional information in order to comply with safer recruitment requirements. Any job offer will be conditional on the satisfactory completion of the necessary pre-employment checks and receipt of satisfactory references.
