For New Applicants:

Unless otherwise directed please complete and return the Millfield application form to:

Mr Mark Greenow

BA16 0YD

or by email to his PA

If your application meets our requirements, you'll be invited to have an interview or attend a Trials Day. In some circumstances telephone and Skype interviews can be conducted.

We are required to view education and coaching certificates. We will take up at least two references. Referees will be asked specifically whether there is any reason that you should not be employed in situations where you will have responsibility for, or substantial access to, persons under 18. Offering contracts to temporary staff for courses depends completely on the numbers and timing of students signing on to the course. If at any stage it becomes apparent that we will not be able to offer you a position we will inform you. Otherwise you will still be under consideration and/or awaiting a suitable vacancy. We require all staff offered a contract to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (formally an enhanced UK Criminal Record Bureau check) which is paid for by Millfield and if applicable to provide (at their expense) a Police Check from their own country or the one they are currently resident in. We take the protection of the children in our care very seriously and expect our staff to help us complete these checks in a timely manner. You will be sent two copies of your contract, one for you to keep and one to sign and return to us. You will also be sent a job description and a form to complete giving us your bank details for the payroll. Prior to adding you to the payroll we need to confirm your right to work in the UK and will need to view your passport, EU identity card or work visa. This is a legal obligation.
