How to apply

Once you’ve found a role that’s a good fit for your skills and experience,  click the Apply Online button and you’ll be asked to register and set up an account on the site (Why do I have to register?) or log into the account you’ve already created. Be sure to provide an email address you use regularly, because that’s how we’ll keep in touch with you about your application.

We prefer to receive online applications, but please email jobs@bath.ac.uk or call the Recruitment Team on 01225 386924 if you are unable to submit an online application.

All applications must be received by the closing date. Vacancies close at midnight UK time.

Application Form

We request that all applicants apply for vacancies via the specific application form for the role. During the application process you’ll be asked a series of questions that you can answer on-line.

Application forms help to ensure that all applicants provide the information in the same format, enabling the selection panel to more easily compare the applications that they receive.

The online application form can be completed in stages and you can login/logout at any time. The form automatically saves as you enter your information and it is simple to move backwards and forwards within the form at any time prior to submission. Help is available at each stage to guide you through the form.

Before final submission, you can preview your application and can then choose to refine or submit the form.

After Applying

Once you have submitted your application, you will see in your My Applications area, that the status of your application will be "submitted" and it will also show the date of submission.

The following day, you will receive an acknowledgment email.

After Closing Date

The selection panel will assess all applicants against the requirements of the job description and person specification and then notify the Recruitment Team of their decision.

A Recruitment Coordinator will then contact applicants as appropriate.
