Applications for the main round of JMO recruitment closed on 12 August 2021. Positions not filled in the main round will be advertised in the second round of recruitment from 4 October 2021.
Yes. As the positions are facility/network based you need to apply to each advertisement. Submitting only a CV only will not get you a job regardless of what you have been told.
The system accepts applications for more than one position. However, you should only apply for positions that you are prepared to work in, if you are offered the position. If you no longer wish to be considered for a position, please withdraw your application as soon as possible.
If you receive more than one offer, you need to accept ONLY one and decline all others. You should contact the convenor if you wish to discuss or clarify an offer to assist in your decision-making.
If you have already accepted a position but subsequently become eligible for a more desirable job, you will need to notify the convenor or the contact of the previously accepted position as soon as practicable to inform them that you will be accepting another, and are withdrawing from the previously accepted one.
