The UpRising application and interview process

Our recruitment process aims to see candidates at their best. That’s why we set out the process from the beginning. We will ask you to show your skills, not just talk about them—through examples of your work or an exercise.

The process will be straightforward:

  • We will ask you to submit two documents via our electronic form: your CV (2 pages max); and a supporting statement (of no more than 2 pages) which sets out clearly how your skills and experience match the items listed in the person specification for the role.
  • You must submit these documents and complete the form by 9am on Monday 8th August.
  • We will score candidates on the basis of how they have shown us their experience and skills match the person specification we have set out and on that basis invite candidates for an interview.
  • The interviews will take place via Zoom the week commencing Monday 15th August.
  • We will ask you to complete one task in advance of the interview. Full guidance will be provided if you successfully progress to the interview stage.
  • On the interview day you will have 10 minutes to present your pre-prepared task activity followed by a 40-minute interview with the Head of Programmes and members of the team.
  • We expect to make our decision on the successful candidate shortly afterward and we will let both successful and unsuccessful interviewees know at the beginning of the following week at the latest.

There is an opportunity to have an informal conversation with Rukaiya Jeraj (Head of Programmes) before applying for the role. Please contact rukaiya.jeraj@uprising.org.uk if you would like to gain a better understanding of the organisation and role.

Please note that to keep our recruitment process open and fair, we will not negotiate salaries outside the advertised range. The position remains open until filled. We aim to represent the diverse communities we are part of and welcome applicants from across all sectors of the community. We strongly believe that a diverse workforce brings with it a diversity of ideas, thinking and ways of working which enhances what we do.
