A note for student applications
When applying for jobs at the University or Students' Union, make sure that you read both the job details and the person specification very carefully. When writing your application, you should pay particular care to the personal statement. As well as giving good reasons about why you want the job, it is also very important to write about each of the skills or attributes listed in the person specification, giving concrete examples where you can. Even when you have previously worked for the University or Students' Union you cannot assume that the selector will know about what you have done, so you must present these clearly with each application.
