HOW TO APPLY
Thank you for your interest in our vacancies; we wish you every success with your application.
Each vacancy file below links to the Job Description (and Person Specification); Application Form; Equal Opportunities Statement and Recruitment Monitoring Form; Guidelines for Filling in the Application Form, Summary of Terms & Conditions and 'About Hafal' leaflet.
You are welcome to express an interest in more than one post: if so you need only complete one application form but you should take account of the different person specifications. In all cases please indicate on the form which post or posts you wish to be considered for.
The two forms you are required to submit (the Application Form and Equal Opportunities Statement and Recruitment Monitoring Form) are interactive; we would suggest that you follow the on-screen prompt to save the documents to your PC; you will then be able to fill in and save your completed forms before attaching them to an email. To submit the two forms, save and attach them to an email and send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you may post a copy of the completed (typed or handwritten) forms to Hafal's Head Office, Suite C2, William Knox House, Britannic Way, Llandarcy, Neath SA10 6EL.
If you need any assistance in submitting your application form or have any other problems with this process please feel free to contact us by email to email@example.com or on 01792 816600.

Induction and training
At Hafal we are keen that our staff are fully trained, and that they have continuous opportunities for further development.
New staff take part in our intensive induction training programme. This provides a thorough grounding in the practices and policies surrounding serious mental illness in Wales.
Each Hafal employee also has an 'Individual Learning Log' that continually records their training and development. This is regularly discussed and updated with supervisors. Service providers will receive frequent Empowerment training so that they can provide Hafal's client-centred service to the highest standards.
Every three months, Hafal runs all-staff training days in Builth Wells. Apart from giving colleagues and Trustees from across Wales the chance to meet up, the day also encourages everyone to share ideas and opinions about the running of Hafal. Workshops and seminars on a variety of topics are run throughout the day, which ends with a group task.
Hafal is committed to actively opposing all forms of discrimination. We take positive steps to implement policies and practices which counter direct and indirect discrimination on the grounds of race, gender, sexuality, disability, age, ethnic origin, nationality, commitment to dependents, religion, marital status or political belief. We are also committed to employing people with a direct experience of mental illness.
