I am currently in the process of applying to my dream job and whilst I have read all of the tips that Theo has included elsewhere, still feel a little bit unsure of the best way to present my application. The application form is the standard Ealing borough form and has a couple of boxes for a supporting statement as well as a more general statement on personal attributes. I have so far, written a cover letter, completed the form (excluding the statement) and have drafted out an executive summary. However, in the Ealing guidance notes on the supporting statement they state that "it would be helpful if you could number your responses to match those on the person specification." This suggests to me that they aren't that fussed about prose and has left me confused with how formally they want this presented. Please let me know your thoughts! Many thanks.
