How do I know if I have been successful?

A shortlist will be decided by the 15th of April. Should you be successful in making the shortlist you will be contacted individually via email by no later than the 16th of April 2021. If you do not receive an email from us, unfortunately this means that you have been unsuccessful in making it onto our shortlist. The decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into
