IWM operates recruitment in line with current legislative guidelines, good practice and with due diligence. Appointments will be made by fair and open competition and selection on merit. The recruitment process involves a number of stages, and the combination of stages varies depending on the post that is being filled.
You will enter the process once you have completed and submitted an application form and equal opportunities monitoring form. All recruitment exercises will include an emailed application form unless otherwise agreed in accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. A CV in itself will not be sufficient for your application to be considered, and you should only email a CV if you are explicitly requested to do so. Your application form will be evaluated in order to assess your suitability for interview.
For certain posts, candidates may be invited to undertake a selection test or attend an assessment centre. Any of the following stages may be used to consider your application during this process (not necessarily occurring in the order given below):
- Short-listing using written tests, IT skills, typing, numeracy etc
- Job simulation exercises: in-tray exercises, presentations, group exercises etc
- Psychometric testing
