How to apply

How to apply for a job

Thank you for your interest in working for Adur & Worthing Councils. All our vacancies can be viewed online:

If you are asked to apply via application form, the most important part of your application form is the 'supporting information relevant to your application' section.

You need to show how you meet all the essential criteria within the person specification in this section. We shortlist based on this information so if you don't provide evidence of how you meet the criteria (giving examples of how you have demonstrated them in the past), your application is unlikely to be shortlisted.

We don't accept applications from job agencies.

We hope that our jobs pages provide the information you need but if you would like further information on any of our vacancies please contact either:

Please submit your application form or CV (whatever is specified in the job advert) by the end of the closing date.

Your application will be reviewed after the closing date and if you are shortlisted you will be contacted via email.

Due to volume of applications, we are not always able to contact those who are unsuccessful at shortlisting. You can assume you have been unsuccessful if you have not been contacted within four weeks of the closing date.
