I'm currently in the (fun?!) process of applying for new jobs quite a distance away. I've just received the standard application form for one of the boroughs for a job I am REALLY interested in. The application form is joined together like a printed booklet (all in colour etc - very posh looking) and the space for your statement of application is a 2 page spread with printed lines. It looks as if it is designed to be hand-written on. My dilemma is that I always feel handwritten statements don't look as professional and I much prefer to type. Would it be acceptable to stick on my typed statement do you think or should I copy it all out by hand? In my current LA the space on the form was so small you were always expected to write 'see attached sheet' so typing wasn't an issue but this doesn't feel right on this form... What should I do?
