  1. I am applying for more than one job, do I need to fill out a separate application form?

    You must ensure that you complete a separate application form for every post advertised and provide us with separate supporting statements relevant to that post. The information you complete on your initial application, including your supporting statements, will be saved for you to resubmit or amend to suit any future applications.

  2. Can you tell me if you have received my application?

    Once we receive your online application we will send you an email to confirm receipt of it. You can also log back onto the website in order to check the progress of your application.

  3. I have made some mistakes on my application form - how can I correct them?

    Unfortunately, once you have submitted your application form you cannot change your details. 

  4. Who should I provide as my referees?

    Your referees must be able to assess your suitability for the post.  

    One of the nominated referees should be a manager from your current or most recent employment. If you have just completed full-time education you could use your course tutor, or another academic staff member familiar with your work. Family members or personal friends should not be named as referees.

    The university will contact the referees of the successful candidate following interview.

  5. How long will I have to wait to find out if my application has been successful?

    Normally you will hear from us within six weeks if you have been short listed for interview, otherwise you should assume your application has been unsuccessful.

    Online applications will receive an email notifying them of a change in your application status and you can also log back onto the website in order to check the progress of your application.

  6. Can you send me a paper application pack?

    We would like to encourage you to apply online. However if there are exceptional circumstances and you are unable to apply online please telephone 020 8331 8982 for further information.

    Please note the information sent to you will be exactly the same as the information on our website and you should allow at least four working days for the information to arrive.

    Applications must be received by the closing date displayed on the job advert.

  7. What is the Equal Opportunities form used for?

    The University of Greenwich is an equal opportunity employer. The information gathered on the form is used to assist us in monitoring the implementation and effectiveness of our Equal Opportunities policy. The information collected will be stored and processed in accordance with Data Protection Principles for the purpose of preparing anonymised statistical reports.  The information will not be made available to the selection panel and will not, therefore, be used in any part of the recruitment decision making process.

  8. How do we protect your information?

    We use a trusted server certificate (also known as a digital certificate) to assure you of our identity and secure sockets layer (SSL) to encrypt data transmission.  This is an industry standard approach.

  9. Why do I have to register to apply for a job?

    We ask you to register to the website in order to apply for a post. As part of this process we ask you to accept our terms of use. Registering will also allow access to extra services and a personalised area to manage your application. Here you will be able to save your application and review it before submitting it. You will also be able to monitor the progress of your application online. 

  10. Why do I have to fill in an application form?

    All applicants are required to apply for vacancies by completing an application form. A CV may be submitted to supplement the information provided in the application form.

    Using an application form ensures that all applicants provide the information in the same format, which helps the selection panel to compare applications that they receive more easily.

    Once you have submitted an application to the university your information will be available for you to use for any future applications.

  11. I am interested in working in the University, is there a way I can be alerted to job opportunities?

    Job opportunities at the university may arise at any time of the year, and so you may like to be alerted when we are advertising a particular type of role.

    There are two ways in which you can register your interest, they are both absolutely free.

    1. Jobs by email: this allows you to get the latest jobs that match your search requirements sent straight to your inbox.
