Top tips for filling in the application form:

  • Research the employer offering the job. Find out what they do and what the job involves.
  • Show the employer you understand their business by referring to them in your application, for example: "I am interested in developing skills in building maintenance and noticed you were successful in winning a large contract to maintain houses for a large housing association."
  • Always read the job description for the job you are applying for before you start to complete the application form to make sure the information you include is relevant to the job.
  • Before you start filling in your form, always check the instructions for filling in the application form.
  • Make sure you take your time. Don’t rush as you may make mistakes!
  • Prepare a draft of the application form before transferring the information to the actual form. If you’re filling it in by hand, make sure you don’t make mistakes on the original form for the employer.
