You will need to upload a completed application form and CV for each project that you apply for.  Please make your preference of projects clear in your application.

Please list your two referees on the application form. The project supervisor will get in touch with your referees after the deadline on Wednesday 11th January 2023. You do not need to do anything for this to happen.

  • Please do not include a photo in your CV.
  • Your referees have been asked to write a gender-neutral reference, without your name.

Once received in the Envision office your application will be forwarded to the appropriate Envision supervisor who may want to interview you. Envision will offer interviewed candidates a £75 contribution to interview expenses.

If you are selected to go through to the second stage of the selection process, your application will be considered, alongside those of the candidates for the other Envision projects by the Envision management group.
