How many applicants will be shortlisted for each post?

Usually three times as many applicants will be shortlisted as commissioned training posts. However ratios may be increased/decreased for some specialisms dependent on number of applications received in order to maximise the opportunity for all available posts to be filled to meet workforce demand or as a result of constraints of interview capacity/availability. However decreasing the ratio will be avoided where possible. A reserve list of applicants will be identified equal to the number of commissions agreed for that specialism or theme which will be drawn upon if first choice applicants do not confirm their interview place, or subsequently withdraw from the process.
