    Sounds about right. Factual list of relevant experience in the bit on the form. competency based answers in the supporting statement.

    Ie person spec states ” must have good knowledge of some fancy computer programme”

    IN your supporting statement you write. “I have good knowledge of fancy computer programme. I used this in my job at x achieving this that and the other”.

    Address each point in the person spec in this way

    My job is killing me so its time for a change, I have found the perfect opening however the application process is not what I’m used to, they don’t want a CV or cover letter.

    On the application form there is a section for relevant experience and a section for a personal statement (straight forward so far)however the application states that no experience is required as full training will be given.
    In the experience bit do I list all of my previous experience that ties in with the stated essential skills in the advert and then use the personal statement to address the required aptitude/attributes?

    Can I use bullet points for the experience to cut down on the use of blocks of texts?

    help me STW.
