1. Online Application Submission
When your application has been submitted you will receive an automated email explaining what will happen next.
2. Application Review
Once we have reviewed your application we will notify you by email of the outcome. Usually this happens within 7 days of your application, although at busy times it may take longer.
3. References request and Applicant Assessment
If we feel that work may be available for you we will take up your references and ask you to complete a short online assessment.
Once we have received satisfactory references from your referees and you have passed the online assessment you will be contacted to arrange registration.
4. Registration – Document Check
You will be contacted to arrange a registration appointment. The purpose of the registration appointment is to check that you are entitled to work in the UK and to check that you have the relevant qualifications for the roles we feel are suitable for you.
You will be contacted if you have selected a role that requires additional training provided by Clear Links. You must meet the required standard in order to be offered work in that role.
After the successful completion of registration and any additional training you will be added to our worker database. Your skills, qualifications and experience will be used to match you with students requiring support.
Clear Links is your first point of contact for all queries. We provide all support workers with general working practices, role descriptions and role guidance.
At this point you will be asked to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)/Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) check if this is required.
I thoroughly enjoy working with Clear Links and hope to do so for many years. I continue to feel valued and supported in the work that I do and it is joy to be able to facilitate students to grow and reach their full potential.
It is a great role and very enjoyable. My mix of students allows me to utilise a varied approach and different aspects of my skill set. It's a great satisfaction to help people achieve their academic goals.
