How to Apply

Thanks for your interest in working for Kirkwood Hospice. We’re looking forward to receiving your application and we hope that this information will help you when completing the process.

We use an online recruitment portal which requires you to register your details with us. Once registered, you will be able to quickly apply for live roles in just a few clicks.

If you have any queries about Kirkwood’s online recruitment process please contact the Human Resources team on: 01484 557900 or email: recruitment@kirkwoodhospice.co.uk and we’ll be happy to help you.

When applying for a vacancy you should upload a CV. This can be uploaded as a Microsoft Word document or PDF.

A CV should include your work and education history along with any qualifications or skills that you think are important to the role.

You will also need to submit ‘additional information’. This should detail the skills and qualities that you would bring to the role and Kirkwood. It would be helpful if you could complete this using the Job Description and Person Specification as a guide to the areas that you should cover. Your additional information can be as short as you feel appropriate but not normally more than two pages.

Please note: You must submit a CV and additional information document for your application to be submitted.

As part of the online process, we will ask you to submit reference information which will only be used should you be successful. We will also request personal information about you such as your ethnicity and sexual orientation. This information is not used for shortlisting purposes, but is held separately and used for monitoring and reporting purposes.

A Privacy Notice on the recruitment page outlines how we process and store your recruitment data. We would encourage you to read this to familiarise yourself with this information. You can also manage your candidate account on the recruitment page to assist you in future job applications with us.
