Please be aware that we have a technical issue with the recruitment portal when applicants save their application form to continue at a later time. A link is generated and emailed to the applicant, however some applicants are unable to return to their application via the link. This means applicants need to start a new application form. Whilst we are working on resolving this issue we would advise that applicants complete their application form information separately to the system and then enter all the information to their application form in one session when they are ready to submit. Please avoid using the 'complete later' function during this time.  Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

All applications for roles with West Yorkshire Combined Authority are made online via our recruitment portal. Please make sure you explain within your application how you meet the elements of the role profile. Please see our Advice for Candidates webpage for guidance with this.

Our shortlisting process is anonymous. The shortlisting panel will not be given your name or other personal details.

The only information used for shortlisting is that which is relevant to your potential performance in the role. Panel members will therefore only see your responses to the Supporting Statement, Employment History, Qualifications, Skills, Volunteering and Memberships.  Please therefore do not add any personal identifiable information within these steps.  Please do not upload a CV to your application. Any CVs which are uploaded to the application are discarded before the application is shared with the manager. 

If you have any difficulties with your application please contact us.  Please note emails are picked up Monday-Friday 8am – 6pm (excluding Bank Holidays).  

You can read our privacy notice for applicants, which explains how we protect and manage your personal data.
