Please can you advise? A post has been advertised locally for a TLR 2 job - 2a (+£2781) to begin Jan 2012. I believe I fulfil all criteria and am presently working on my supporting statement. I am struggling to fit everything into 2 pages. Would it be acceptable for such a post to write 2 and a bit, or 2 and a half pages or would my application be discounted straight away? Also, what is the etiquette re the position of the supporting statement - pasted on to the application form in the appropriate place, or a reference made on the application form and the supporting statement attached??? If attached, should it be in the format of a supporting letter or statement? I might put a cover sheet at the beginning of the application just to say what is enclosed. I am assuming the supporting letter/statement should go after the application form - ie. 1. sheet stating what is enclosed; 2. application form; 3. supporting letter/statement. I have another question... I have read advice that says to number pages and put my name on every page. With electronic appication forms this presents a problem, unless handwritten - so do I handwrite it? But other advice says the best shortlisting practise involves 'blind' shortlisting, with no mention of each applicant's name, so what to do? Handwrite name and page number on each page? Do not handwrite name and page number on each page? Paste supporting statement or send as separate document - and if sent as separate document send as letter or statement??? There should be a manual or something to standardise everything!
