Advice and information about attending an interview for a position with the council.
No, completing an online application ensures immediate and safe delivery of your application, but you can also request an electronic copy in PDF format or a hard copy. You do, however, have to complete an application form as the council does not accept CVs.
If you have any special requirements, please contact us for help.
Please note: our preferred method of receiving applications is via our council jobs website:
Jobs at the council
Yes, you can apply online until midnight on the closing date.
This is rare but may happen if the circumstances of the vacancy change, for example if the number of applicants greatly exceeds the time available for shortlisting or interviews.
'Internal only' vacancies are only open to internal applicants who:
Each vacancy has a job outline and employee specification attached to provide information on the post. The employee specification sets out the essential and desirable requirements for the post.
You should ensure that you meet all the essential criteria before applying. You will need to demonstrate clearly in your application form how you meet each criteria on the employee specification as the selection panel will only consider the information in your application form and assess this against the employee specification to produce an interview shortlist.
It is a good idea to print or save a copy of the job outline and employee specification in case you wish to refer to it again if invited to interview.
Please note: This information will no longer be available on the website once the vacancy has reached its closing date.
Yes, please follow on screen instructions when filling out your online application.

Wherever possible, interview dates are given in the advert text and you should hear by email or letter if you have been invited to interview around 1-2 weeks prior to the interview date. If you have not been shortlisted for interview you will be informed of this as well.
Job vacancies in Ofsted-registered childcare settings can be found at or in:
You can also find out about vacancies by contacting childcare settings directly or by searching for 'childcare' in the keywords box via East Riding of Yorkshire Council's jobs at the council site:
Please note: it is up to individual childcare settings where they decide to advertise their vacancies, so not all vacancies in the East Riding can be found on the East Riding jobs website.
If you wish to advertise a vacancy on the East Riding Recruitment website, you can do so by emailing details of the vacancy (including salary, hours and anything else you'd like to include) to recruitment services:
When writing your advert please include all of the relevant 'keywords' that you think potential applicants will search for such as 'childcare', 'nursery assistant' and 'room leader'. This will help your advert to show up in search results.
Applicants for vacancies outside of the council can't complete an online application via the jobs website so you would also need to include guidance on how to apply and who to contact for more information in your advert. You can include attachments such as pdfs and word documents in your advert. Please include a closing date for all applications as this will be the date that the advert will be removed from the website.
There is a fee of £50 plus VAT for placing an advert on the East Riding website for which you will receive an invoice. Please include the name of your company, the full address for the invoice to be sent to and a contact name and number in the email.
If you require an order number on your invoice please state this in your email as this will not automatically be provided.
Your advert will appear within 48 hours of you emailing it to recruitment services and the invoice will follow.
The job advert will also appear on the Indeed Recruitment website:
