Preston Domestic Violence Services (PDVS) Guidance For Completing The Application Form We would like to give you the best opportunity of being shortlisted for the job you are applying for with PDVS. Therefore, we would like you to read the following guidelines carefully before filling in the job application form and sending it to us. The Job Description tells you what you will be expected to do in the day to day operation of the job, for example, identify and assess the risks of the victim of domestic violence, liaise with other agencies etc The Person Specification tells you what skills, experience, qualities and qualifications you are expected to have for the job. These are clearly set out and say if they are essential or desirable. You need to evidence these in your application as much as possible and we will look for the evidence of these at the interview as well. The shortlisting panel will carefully read your application form and mark it against the requirements set out in the Person Specification. It is therefore very important that you read this carefully and ensure that you have given enough detail either in the main body of the form or in the personal statement for the panel to be able to score you against each of the Person Specification requirements. Even though we have said we will draw evidence from the interview we would expect you to refer to it on the application form. If you don’t do this you will not be shortlisted. We will be looking for evidence that you can do the things you say you can, for example, saying that you say you have a good understanding of domestic violence does not give us enough evidence that you actual do have a good understanding of domestic violence, we need to know what you understand about domestic violence. We don’t want you to go into a huge amount of detail but you need to give us enough information to work with. Remember to read your form through before you sign it – imagine that you were shortlisting for this job – would you be able to offer yourself an interview? Don’t forget to complete the equal opportunities form as well. Return both to us by email – email@example.com, by post to Valerie Wise, Chief Executive, PDVS, 10 Oakham Court, Preston PR1 3XP, or by fax to 01772 201701. We will only acknowledge your application if you send us a stamped addressed envelope or an email address. We require you to provide us with two references, one of which must be your current or most recent employer. We ask you to think carefully about the references you give and to ensure that you ask their permission to be used as a reference. We will only contact the referees of the successful candidate. Please note we will not consider CVs or late applications. Good luck!
