Bad luck about your recent lack of success. Do remember to read all the advice clickables inside the Welcome thread to get the tips that might help you. The last deadline for staff already in post to resign is May 31. This means that after half term there will be more jobs advertised, and only those non-employed (including students) will be able to apply. So you should have a good chance then.

I do Application and Interview one-to-ones, and also contribute to the Job Application Workshops. We look at application letters, executive summaries and interviews, with practical exercises that people really appreciate. The Job Seminars are all sold out, I'm afraid, but Julia is planning some more later on. A new SLT seminar is planned for 18 June. E-mail Julia on firstname.lastname@example.org for how to book a meeting with me personally. Look forward to seeing you!
