I thought i knew what the post was requiring in terms of an application, however now i am not so sure... They say: please apply by letter of application, enclosing a current C.V and application form. The application form has on it a blank section entitled Supporting information, where it advises you to include evidence of how you meet the essential and desirable criteria set out in the person spec. It adds: tell us about things you have been responsible for or involved in, what you have achieved and feedback given. Include examples form paid and unpaid work or other activities you have undertaken in your personal life that are relevant to the job. Include information about why you want the job and anything else you wish to add. . . . . My Q is- Is this 'supporting information' the letter of application? And if so should i start with Dear Mr X and include my address etc (even though it is a section of a larger application form and has a border thingy around it?!) Q2> ALSO , should I include an additional sheet on the executive statement, or is this it? . . . Q3> Do i include a covering letter along with everything else, or no need?
