Application and supporting statement
We receive thousands of applications and with each and every one of these we ask for relevant details pertaining to the processing of your application. Please be assured we will confidentially store your information in line with relevant legislation and best practice.
Writing a great supporting statement
It’s really important that you stand out from the crowd. After all, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
Supporting statements are a perfect opportunity for you to show your motivation and demonstrate why you’re the right person for the job. Remember quite often this will be your first introduction to us, so make sure it counts.
Some pointers you may wish to consider are:
Why you? Tell us why you want the job, explain why you feel you’d be suitable briefly detailing any relevant experience and skills that relate to the role.
Make it compelling. Tailor your supporting statement to the specific job application. Don’t be tempted to use one standard template. It supports your motivation if you are able to show us how you can add value to WHH.
Is it spelt correctly? You know it makes sense; it’s also a good idea to ask a friend or family member to cast their eye over as a double check.
Re-vamp your application. It can be a bit of a minefield on where to start. A great application really highlights your skills and experience and can set you apart from the competition.
Here are a few tips:
- Keep it punchy and factual.
- If the job is in a different area than your previous roles, draw links between the two.
- Do you have a seamless link in dates for your career history? – account for any gaps in your application, keep it current.
