What you should know before applying for a job

We welcome your interest in applying for a job with us. Here you'll be able to find everything you need to know about our recruitment process.

We know applying for jobs can be time consuming, repetitive and sometimes frustrating so we have made our application process simple, straightforward and online.  

Benefits of online applications

Your personal details and employment history are saved and will pre-populate any further applications. You are also able to track your application and view progress updates.

Follow the instructions here to search for a job and create an online account. You will need to register with your personal email address.

We only accept online applications unless otherwise stated in the advert. This is to ensure that we capture the same information from candidates to help ensure a fair and consistent shortlisting process. After the vacancy closing date we provide the hiring manager with your anonymised application with your personal details and equal opportunities removed.

We reserve the right to use relevant social media to validate information about you to help determine suitability for a role. This will be focussed on professional activity and will be used where relevant to the job.

Your candidate journey

We recognise the recruitment process can be confusing and does vary depending on the post. Here is an overview of the stages in our recruitment process:

Behaviours framework

Our behaviours framework has been developed to reflect our 2020 North Yorkshire values and leadership principles. Engagement with our staff and trade unions has helped to ensure that the new framework is relevant to everyday life in our services. The framework describes six behaviours that are key to the daily work of colleagues and focuses on two key outcomes: enabling excellent customer service and driving high performance and continuous improvement.

The six behaviours are:

  • focusing on customers and communities;
  • taking responsibility;
  • working together;
  • acting with integrity;
  • building a culture of continuous improvement and innovation; and
  • leading by example

Applying for a school vacancy

If you apply for a school vacancy, the school will hold all details of the vacancy and your application. You should contact the school for further information and updates.

We do not hold a register for supply teachers. If you would like to do supply work in a North Yorkshire school, contact the individual school directly. The school is responsible for any appointment and they carry out any employment checks.

Details of our schools are available here.
