Code of Practice on the English Language Requirements for Public Sector Workers

Public Authorities must ensure that all members of staff in customer facing roles, whatever their nationality or origins, are able to communicate the English language fluently with the general public, verbally and in written format (access needs will be met for those with a disability)

The above doesn’t apply to HCPA as their recruits are not public sector workers.

  • Ensure your CV is up to date, ensuring gaps in employment have been addressed and includes your current, or most recent, employer. Try to make your CV as concise as possible. Make sure you include your personal details. Your name, email address, contact number and address. The clearer, the better. Bullet points and subheadings are a great way of making it easy to read for the hiring manager. Make sure to use spell check and your grammar is correct.
  • Your supporting statement is your opportunity to evidence how your skills, knowledge and experience match what the hiring managers are looking for based on the Person Specification in the Job Outline. Use the job outline to structure your statement. As with your CV, this should be concise and to the point.
