Q. Can I apply for internal vacancies?

 

A: This site is for both internal and external candidates, so you may come across vacancies with the advert status of "Internal" and for these posts, if you are not a current employee of the University of Wolverhampton, you will not be eligible to apply and will not be considered for these posts. We hope you do not find this too disappointing and would encourage you to register and take advantage of our jobs alerts service, so that we can notify you when suitable roles become available.

 

 

Q. How do I return to an unfinished application?

 

A: As long as it is before the closing date of the vacancy, you can return to an unfinished application by logging into your account and clicking on the associated job title within the overview table found on the "My Account" screen.

 

 

 

Q. What if I am unable to provide a national insurance number at this time?

 

A: In the event that you are unable to provide a national insurance number, please enter N/A in the appropriate field. If you are successful in your application we will contact you at a later date to obtain this information.

 

 

Q. Why can I attach documents in .PDF format only?

 

A: We ask for documents in the PDF format as this is a common standard with suitable security features. PDF creator software is freely available on the internet or Word documents can be converted using the "save as" function in later versions of Microsoft Word.

 

 

Q. Can I make changes once I have submitted my application?

 

A: No, you cannot change your application or attached documents once they have been submitted.

 

 

Q. Do I have to apply online?

 

A: We prefer applications to be made online as it helps us to provide you and our internal customers with the best possible service.

 

 

Q. What if I have forgotten my account password?

 

A: If at any stage you forget your account password, you can reset your password by clicking on the reset password link found on the account login page and then following the on-screen instructions.

 

 

Q. What if I am unable to login to my account?

 

A: In the unlikely event that you are unable to login to your account, please contact us at hr@wlv.ac.uk .
