Once shortlisting is complete you will be invited to book an interview via Oriel. As soon as interview slots are released for booking, you will be sent an email notification. Please be aware that upon receiving an invitation to interview, there will be a stated deadline by which you must book your interview slot, otherwise the invitation will be withdrawn.
Interview booking will be on a first come, first served basis. Candidates will have the opportunity to book onto one of 13 separate interview centres across the UK. The dates of each centre are published to the dates & posts page.
It is anticipated that in round 1 all interview invites will be sent by Thursday 28 December 2017.
Once you have received your invitation to interview, you will be able to book into an interview slot via the the Oriel system.
Upon logging in you will be able to choose from the vacant timeslots across any of the available centres. Slots are allocated on a 'first come, first served' basis so be aware that your preferred centre/date/time might not be available. It is possible to change a booking to another vacant slot at any point up until the booking deadline should need arise.
When choosing your centre you should do this on the basis of the most geographically convenient available. There is no benefit to being interviewed at one region over another based on where you want to train or any other reason.
Once you book a slot, you will receive an email confirming your booking and will be able to see in your Oriel account details of your booking.
There will be a booking deadline after which any candidates not booking will have their application withdrawn; the timeline has information of when this will be. If you encounter any difficulty booking your interview, you should contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, and before the booking deadline.
In the event you are not able to attend your interview at the scheduled date/time, you should cancel the booking via Oriel as soon as you are aware of this. If you no longer wish your application to be considered, you should also withdraw your application, again via Oriel.
This may allow your interview place to be offered to another candidate.
