Please be aware that, if successfully appointed, you could be required to work anywhere within the two counties of Dorset and Wiltshire. However, during the recruitment process we will seek preferences for an initial posting, for example:
- In the North of the Service area (Swindon, Stratton, Westlea, Salisbury, Chippenham, Trowbridge)
- In the South of the Service area (Weymouth, Poole, Redhill, Westbourne, Springbourne, Christchurch, Ferndown)

Initial postings will be for a minimum three year period before you are eligible to be posted to a different Service location, unless there is a change in Service needs.
Assessment throughout the process
Please be aware that candidates’ attitudes and behaviours are assessed throughout the process in line with our core values and RESPECT framework which can be found here.
We will be filling a number of vacancies from this process; however, it is also our intention to hold a pool of successful candidates that we can offer positions to as further vacancies arise.
Due to the high volume of applications we will be dealing with throughout this process, it will not be possible to provide individual feedback to candidates.
We will be adhering to government Covid-19 safety measures to protect the health and welfare of our staff and candidates throughout the selection process. We will be unable to progress your application if you cannot attend or complete all stages of the process on the specified dates.
As you are aware, the Covid-19 pandemic is an evolving situation, and this means that elements of our process may need to change to accommodate new government restrictions and guidelines. We will keep candidates updated and informed at all stages should any changes become necessary.
