If you see a job you're interested in which matches your skills, you can apply by completing the online application form. Each application you make should be tailored to demonstrate the skills, knowledge, qualifications, behaviours and training you possess which meets the requirements of the post.

The advert text provides a description of the role and the individual that we are looking for along with a link to the job profile - which contains further details of the role and what the individual should be able to demonstrate to undertake the role.

When applying, you will be asked a series of questions and the ability to progress your application will depend on the responses you give. For example - "Do you have the right to work in the UK?" - if you answer no to this question, you will not be able to progress your application further as it is essential that you have the right to work in the UK to be employed by Perth & Kinross Council.
