Applicants to these posts will receive an email following the closing date and where applicable interviews will be held by video calling or telephone.

For all currently advertised posts please note that there will be a delay to the reviewing and short-listing of applications, interviews and subsequently any proposed start dates.

This is subject to change in line with National Guidance as and when it is received.
