How we recruit

We want to ensure all systems, policies, and processes are free from bias or discrimination and are fair and accessible.

Application forms are formatted to ensure any personal data is removed before applications are reviewed by the shortlisting panel. This process allows us to ensure that the shortlisting is completed in a fair and consistent manner, and that all applicants are provided with the same opportunity to demonstrate their abilities.

We welcome candidates from all backgrounds and are committed to making the recruitment process as accessible as possible. We also encourage any candidates to approach us for reasonable adjustments during our application process.

Information for candidates

  1. Submitting your application

    We believe passionately that our recruitment process should be fair, giving everyone the opportunity to present their best selves. To accomplish this, we make sure that our recruitment process includes blind shortlisting to ensure that we are recruiting on the basis of an individual's application rather than other personal factors.

    Therefore, the Union will only accept applications on its standard form which can be found in the links above. Applications submitted by CV will not be accepted.

  2. Interviewing with us

    We recognise that interviews can be daunting at the best of times. However, as our interview process are online, we know that this can be even more challenging.

    At Arts SU, we believe that people should come as they are, it does not matter what you wear, if a member of your family walks in the background or how clean your house is...we don't mind.
