How To Apply

Once you’ve found a role that’s a good fit for your skills and experience, click the Apply Online button and you’ll be asked to register and set up an account on the site (Why do I have to register?) or log into the account you’ve already created. Be sure to provide an email address you use regularly, because that’s how we’ll keep in touch with you about your application.  To ensure that your email messages are not filtered into your Spam, Junk or Bulk Email folders  please ensure the University of Lincoln are added to your safe senders list.  Please note that if you do not access your account for over a year then this is automatically deleted.  You will need to contact the HR Department to have this enabled again.

Online Application Form

We request that all applicants apply for vacancies via the online application form. During the application process you’ll be asked a series of questions that you can answer online. The form is designed to capture information such as your working history, relevant experience and qualifications and gives you an opportunity to provide a statement which outlines why you feel you are suitable for the role.  An application form also helps to ensure that all applicants provide the information in the same format, enabling the selection panel to more easily compare the applications that they receive.

Each application will take in the region of 30 minutes to complete but can be completed in stages as you can login/logout at any time. The form automatically saves as you enter your information and it is simple to move backwards and forwards within the form at any time prior to submission. Help is available at each stage to guide you through the form.

Before submitting your application, please make sure that you have read the job description and person specification and have demonstrated how you meet the listed criteria for the post. Your application will be assessed according to how well you meet the knowledge, skills and attributes required. 

Please email jobs@lincoln.ac.uk if you need any assistance with the application process.
