Application tips

When applying for one of our vacancies, you’ll go through a structured process, which will vary depending on what programme you’re applying for. As you’d expect, your first step is to complete the online application form. But what happens next?

Here we’ve put together a short guide detailing exactly how each process works - plus a few tips on how to prepare for each one.


How to get the best out of your application

Writing your application

Your answers to the questions on the application are critical to be shortlisted for the next stage, so it’s important you get it right.

Be clear on why you want to work for us. Don’t rush – we want to see that you’ve done your research, and really understand Lincolnshire Co-op. We’ll also ask you about your skills and experience, so try to think of some good examples to help us understand why you believe you are the right person for the role

Make your application stand out – make full use of the word count wherever you can to show off why you’re the best candidate for the role.
