Application help! What to include

    I'm looking for advice really on what to include within my application.

    The form has two bank pages for other information and experience, does this count for my cover letter?
    There isn't a personal specification for this job as what they want from a candidate there are just 5 bullet points. Do I need to write an E.S on these points.

    Sorry I haven't applied for a job for a good few years.

    Hullo there, and welcome to the forum.

    Have they said that application forms only will be accepted? Unless they say that, you can send a separate letter of application or supporting statement.

    Then you can put an E.S. in the pages on the form.

    Yes, but not on the 5 points - read this:

    Executive summaries - where to start when no person specification

    I also suggest that you refresh your memory by reading most of this. I have included some that are not relevant to you, for the benefit of other posters who may read this.
