Online job application help

Thank you for showing an interest in working for the States of Jersey. This guide is provided to assist you in completing your application successfully.

Registering and creating a candidate homepage

You will need to register and create a candidate homepage in order to apply for a job. This will allow you to track the status of your job application, re-use your personal information for future applications, and maintain your personal details.

Confirming and activating your account

When you create your candidate homepage, you will receive an email confirming your login details and password. You must click on the link provided in this email to activate your account. Remember to keep this email safe for future reference.

Logging in

Remember that both the login and password are case sensitive and must be entered correctly in order to access your candidate homepage or apply for a new job. Your candidate password must contain at least eight characters.

Timing out of pages

For security reasons, the application forms and candidate homepage screens will timeout after 30 minutes if you remain inactive or don’t type anything during this time.

Mandatory fields

All mandatory fields marked with an asterisk (*) must be completed before you can submit your job application. If you forget to complete a mandatory field, you will be reminded when you click to submit your application.

Limits on free text fields

The free text fields (such as education qualifications and employment history) can accept up to a maximum of 4,000 characters, including spaces and punctuation. This is roughly 600 words. 


When you have successfully submitted your application you will receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive a confirmation email after submitting your application, check that you have not just saved your application instead of submitting it. You can review this by logging into your candidate homepage and checking the status of your application.
