Useful information

Helpful information to help you complete the application process.

Applying for vacancies

Please apply for any of our vacancies on NYCC’s jobs and careers website.


If you are related to a Councillor or any Council employee please indicate this in the relevant section on your application. It is important that you do not try to influence any elected Council member or employee as this would disqualify you from the application process.

Equal Opportunities monitoring

Craven District Council is committed to equal opportunities in employment and therefore wishes to ensure that no applicant is treated less favourably on unjustifiable grounds.  To assist Craven District Council in the monitoring of its performance in relation to equal opportunities we ask that you complete the questionnaire attached to the application form so that meaningful statistics can be collected.  The questionnaire is used for statistical purposes only.  Upon receipt it will be separated from the application form and will not be made available to those responsible for shortlisting or selection decisions.

Applicants with a disability

If you consider yourself to have a disability please indicate this on the relevant section of the application form.  The Equality Act 2010 states that "A person is disabled if they have a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long term effect on their ability to carry out normal day to day activities."

If you have a disability and would prefer to submit your application on tape, you may do so.  Your recording should follow the format of the application form.  If you would like any recruitment material printed in large print or Braille this maybe requested from the Human Resources team on 01756 706279 or at any time during the recruitment process.
