Completing your Application The purpose of completing this application form is to enable you to be shortlisted for interview. Completed applications are matched against the requirements set out in the Job Profile to create a shortlist of candidates who will be invited for interview. You should study the Job Profile carefully before completing your application form. Whether or not you are shortlisted for interview will depend on how well you can demonstrate that you meet the criteria listed in the Job Profile. The following tips are designed to help you complete the application form as effectively as possible: Study all the information you have been sent about the job and the application form carefully before you begin to complete the form. Ensure that you are clear about what you are being asked to do. Make sure that your application is specific to the job you are applying for. A standard application form, which you have prepared before, may not address all of the items in the Job Profile. BALTIC does not accept CVs in lieu of a completed application form. Think about the extent to which you possess the experience, skills, knowledge and interests necessary to do the job. You should then provide relevant information which addresses all of the items in the Job Profile. If possible, try to do so in the order in which they are listed. Give examples of your experience, knowledge and skills and write in a positive way. Remember to write about those things which you have personally been responsible for. Make sure that you complete all sections of the application form. Select those aspects of your experience, skills and interests that are relevant to the job. Remind yourself of your qualities and skills that you may take for granted. Remember to consider relevant experience, knowledge and skills acquired outside of paid work – for example, experience gained from community or volunteer work, or in your leisure interests.   When listing your previous jobs, ensure that dates are correct and in the right order, stating your most recent employment first. Make sure that you complete your application before the closing date. If you have a disability which makes completing this application difficult or impossible, it is possible that the application can be completed in a different way. If you have such difficulties, please contact us.

Shortlisting Shortlisting will take place shortly after the closing date and is always undertaken by at least two people, one of whom will be the vacant job’s line manager. When shortlisting we are making an assessment of how closely your application meets the criteria set out in the Job Profile. We will go through your application in detail looking for specific evidence that you have the experience, knowledge and skills required to undertake the job successfully. It is unlikely that you will be selected for interview if you haven’t provided specific evidence, supported by relevant examples. Due to the high number of applications we receive, it is not possible for us to respond to every application. If you have not received an invitation to interview within 4 weeks of the closing date, you should assume that your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion.

Interviews and Other Selection Methods The purpose of an interview is to identify the best candidate for the job. A panel of two or three people, including the job’s line manager, will normally interview you. The length of the interview will depend on the level of the post but, on average, it will last for about 30 to 60 minutes. For most of the time the interviewers will ask you questions which relate to the requirements listed in the Job Profile. At the end of the interview, you will be given some time to ask a few questions yourself. It is advisable to have a few questions already prepared. If you are short listed for interview, we will normally contact you by email or letter to invite you to interview. The letter will give full details of what the selection process will involve. In addition to an interview, BALTIC may also use other methods to help choose the best candidate for the job. Common selection methods include work related tests to examine your IT, organisational, team-working or presentation skills. For certain jobs you may be asked to give a short presentation. If additional methods are to be used you will be notified in advance, when we invite you for interview. If you have a disability and need any adjustment to be made in order for you to participate in the selection process, please contact us immediately on receipt of our letter inviting you for interview so that we can accommodate your needs.

Offers of Employment Offers of employment will only be made by a senior member of staff authorised to do so. All offers of employment are made subject to receipt of satisfactory references, successful completion of a probation period and where appropriate disclosure of information by the Criminal Records Bureau (Police checks). Successful candidates are normally appointed at the first point of the salary range for the job.

Recruitment Monitoring Questionnaire Please complete the separate questionnaire to enable us to monitor the effectiveness of our recruitment policy and processes, so that we can ensure recruitment and selection are carried out fairly. The information you provide will also help us to identify any barriers to recruitment. Your answers will be treated in the strictest confidence and used for statistical monitoring purpose only. Your completed form will not be seen by those responsible for short listing and will not, therefore, form part of the selection process.

Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, 1974 Please provide details of any unspent convictions or cautions you have under the terms of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, 1974. Offences resulting in driving licence endorsements should be disregarded, unless holding a clean licence is a specific requirement of the job.

This information will be treated as confidential and will not necessarily disqualify you from employment with BALTIC.

All information about you will be securely held, with access restricted to only those involved in dealing with your application.

BALTIC is pleased to announce the launch of our 2022 Foundation Club Open Call, supporting the creative careers of young people from the North East of England.

About Foundation Club

Foundation Club has been designed to support young people from the North East aged 16-24 to access, engage with, learn from and be mentored by creative and cultural professionals in order to progress their artistic talent and realise their creative potential.

Foundation Club will focus on recruiting talented young people who show outstanding potential and who might feel unable to access, or ‘locked out of’ guidance and networking experiences and opportunities.

In 2022, Foundation Club will give three young people the time and space to research new ideas, make new work, develop new networks, create meaningful exchanges and interact with and find their place within the North East artistic community.

How it works

Foundation Club has four parts:

  • Residency – the three young artists will have access to a shared studio space at BALTIC      for one month to enable them to develop their artistic/creative practice.
  • Mentoring – each artist will receive tailored mentoring support from BALTIC staff and professional artists.
  • Art Commission – during their month-long residency, the three young artists will each be invited to develop a proposal for a new art commission at BALTIC.
  • Collective – graduates of the Foundation Club programme will become members of Foundation Club Collective, a group of young artists who we hope will continue to work together and have ongoing professional and artistic support from BALTIC.
  • Fees – each young artist will be awarded a £1,000 fee and a £500 bursary for travel, subsistence and materials during the month-long residency. A further £500 artist's fee will be available for the commission.

Who can apply?

Applicants should:
- Be aged 16-24 at the time of applying
- Be interested in a career as an artist, arts producer, facilitator or curator
- Have a permanent residence in the North East
- Not be enrolled in a school, college or university course during the academic year 2022/23
