Frequently asked questions regarding applications

Can I email my CV to you without completing the online application form?
No, we do not accept CV’s or speculative applications via email or post.

What if I don’t receive email confirmation you’ve received my application?
Please contact us and we can advise whether we have received your application.

If I’m unable to attend the interview date given, will the panel be able to meet me at a different time?
We will do our best to accommodate certain requests but this isn’t always possible.

Can I attach other documentation to support my application?
Yes but please only include information that is concise and relevant to support your application.

I saw a vacancy I wanted to apply for but the advert has now closed. Is there another way I can apply?
We recommend candidates complete their application as soon as possible, to avoid missing a deadline. Once the advert has closed we are unable to accept submissions.

Will feedback be provided?
We are unable to provide feedback on applications that aren’t shortlisted for interview due to the volume of applications. Feedback can be requested following an interview by contacting us but please allow up to two weeks for a response.

When can I start my new role?
If you are offered a position, the HR department will ensure the required documentation has been received. Once we are in receipt of this, your line manager will contact you to agree a start date. HR will then send you a Contract of Employment.

I have a disability. What support will I receive upon joining the University?
We have a dedicated Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Manager who can discuss your requirements. Please contact your HR Advisor for details. You can also view information available at bucks.ac.uk/equalitydiversity.
