  1. I am applying for more than one job, do I need to fill out a separate application form?

    For every post advertised you must ensure that you complete a separate application form and provide us with a separate supporting statement.  You cannot use one application form to apply for more than one job.  The information you complete on your initial application, including your supporting statement, will however be saved for you to resubmit or amend to suit subsequent applications.

  2. Can you tell me if you have received my application?

    Once we receive your application online we will send you an email to confirm receipt. 

  3. Can I print a copy of my on-line application?

    You will be provided with the option to print a copy of your application when you have completed the application process.

  4. I have made some mistakes on my application form - how can I correct them?

    Unfortunately, once you have submitted your application form online you cannot change your details. If you need to change your details please use the contacts as they appear on the site.

  5. Who should I provide as my referees?

    Your referees must be able to comment on your past employment and recent work performance in relation to the post’s selection criteria. It is advised that your most recent, direct supervisor/line manager, or if you have just completed full-time education the Head/Principal and/or Tutor’s details, is nominated as one of your referees. Do not include family members or friends.

    Please note referees' details are compulsory fields on our application form.

    For all vacancies grade VI and below, referees will not be contacted until after an offer of employment is made.  For vacancies in other categories, referees may be contacted prior to interview.

  6. How long will I have to wait to find out if my application is successful?

    Normally you will hear from us within six weeks if you have been short listed for interview, otherwise you should assume you have been unsuccessful.

  7. Can you send me a paper application pack?

    We would like to encourage you to apply online as the system is user-friendly and the application simple to complete.  However if you would like a paper application pack these are available from the Human Resources Office; please email recruitment@aub.ac.uk

    Please note the information sent to you will be exactly the same as the information on our Website and you should allow at least four working days for the information to arrive.

    Applications must still be received by the closing date displayed on the job advert.

  8. What is the Equality Monitoring Form used for?

    The Arts University Bournemouth is an equal opportunity employer. The information gathered on the form is used to assist us in monitoring the implementation and effectiveness of our Equalities at Work policy. The information collected will be stored and processed in accordance with Data Protection Principles for the purpose of preparing anonymised statistical reports. 

    The information will not be made available to the selection panel and will not, therefore, be used in any part of the recruitment decision making process.

  9. How do we protect your information?

    We use a server certificate (also known as a digital certificate) to assure you of our identity and secure sockets layer (SSL) to encrypt data transmissions.  

  10. Why do I have to register to apply for a job?

    Registration is important to ensure that potential site users are aware of the Terms Of Use for the website and it also provides access to a personalised area of the website, 'My Applications', which enables you to more easily manage your application contacts with the University.

    My Applications

    • Submitted applications are automatically saved and are available for printing
       
    • You can monitor the progress of your application
       
    • Once you have submitted your first application, it becomes available to re-use as a basis for future applications, which means that you will not need to re-enter all of your information again.
       

    All information is held securely and cannot be viewed by the shortlisting panel or Human Resources Office staff until you have submitted your application.

  11. Why do I have to fill in an application form?

    All applicants are required to apply for vacancies by completing an application form. A CV may be submitted to supplement the information provided in the application form.

    Using an application form ensures that all applicants provide the information in the same format, which helps the selection panel to more easily compare the applications that they receive.

    Once you have submitted an application to the University, the information you have input will then be available for you to use for any future applications.

     

  12. I am interested in working for the University, is there a way I can be alerted to future vacancies?
