How to make a successful application

If the opportunity to work in a dynamic and ambitious organisation with a clear commitment to care and compassion, quality and value, and partnership interests you, we would be delighted to receive your application.


 Current vacancies

Once you have found a job you want to apply for, you need to make sure your application form gives you the best possible chance of getting an interview.

Read the instructions on healthjobsuk.com carefully and complete all parts of the application form. Use clear, plain English and keep your sentences short. Do not use all block capitals or all lower case. Check your spelling and grammar. Read what you have written back to yourself; does it make sense?

Always tailor your application form to the job you are apply for, by carefully reading the job description and matching your skills and experience to the criteria in the person specification (found at the end of the job description). The applicants that most closely match the person specification will be those shortlisted for interview.

The ‘Supporting information' section is your opportunity to really sell yourself. You can include information here that is not already covered elsewhere in the application form such as:

  • your skills, knowledge or experience relevant to the post
  • a brief explanation of any gaps in your employment
  • details of any voluntary work you have done
  • how you demonstrate our values >

Always back up what you are saying with tangible and relevant examples of your experience, achievements and any resulting key learning. So rather than just writing ‘I am a good team player', give examples of teams you have been part of, your role within those teams and an explanation of what you achieved through working collectively.

Details of all our vacancies, together with online application forms and job descriptions can be found in the vacancies section. If you have any questions about working for Medway Community Healthcare, please contact us at mchrecruitment@nhs.net or 01634 382276.

We look forward to hearing from you.
