The application process

After you’ve created an account, you can apply for the role you’re interested in. You’ll be asked to upload your CV and a supporting statement, which is your opportunity to tell us why you think you’d be the right person for the job. Using the ‘Manage my applications’ section of your account, you can save draft applications and return to them for editing later.


We will review your application and decide whether or not to invite you to the next stage in the selection process. We’ll contact you directly to arrange an interview if you’re successful. Unfortunately, due to the volumes of applications we receive, we won’t be able to provide feedback to you if you aren’t invited for interview at this stage.

The interview

If we’ve invited you to come and meet us, you’ll most likely be interviewed by the line manager for the role and another relevant staff member. The interview is a great time for us to assess your suitability to the job you’ve applied for, and for you to find out more about Totton and the team you’d be working with.

Your offer

Following a successful interview you will be contacted directly to discuss the offer and a start date. We’ll also need to carry out reference checks at this stage. Some of our roles will require a DBS check, which may need to be applied for and cleared before you can start working with us; your hiring manager will discuss this with you if that’s the case and we’ll keep you updated on progress throughout.
