Recruitment – Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you require a completed application form, rather than just a CV?

An application form helps you to demonstrate your skills, knowledge and experience in relation to the role you are applying for. CVs are often generic documents which are not tailored to a specific role. We also like to find out about your interest and motivation for this new opportunity.

I've never done this role before, what training is provided?

Previous relevant experience is not always necessary as we recognise transferable skills and knowledge and, most importantly, the right attitude. We provide comprehensive training for new members of the team as well as ongoing development. Click here to visit the Develop With Us page.

I've applied for a residential post - can I bring my family and/or pet with me?

Most of the Managers' accommodation comprises a one bedroom flat. Pets are only allowed as long as the Lease permits and it is considered to be suitable. You will need to sign a Licence to Occupy and, as part of this, you are required to live on site and be there most nights of the week.

Do you carry out DBS checks?

If you are going to be working directly with a vulnerable group then we need to carry out a standard disclosure DBS (Criminal Record) check prior to your engagement. This is paid for by the ELM Group.
