Once you have identified which placement(s) you are interested in, click ‘apply for position’. If you have not already done so, you will be prompted to register for a ScotGrad account

Filling out your application

Take plenty of time to research the company, the placement, and to think about why you are the right candidate for the position. 

Check our careers advice section for useful application guidance, tips, and insights. 

We recommend that you write your application offline first and use a spell checker before you complete and submit the online form. You will be able to save your application as you go.

Once you have submitted your application

Following the closing date, you will be contacted by the ScotGrad team to confirm your eligibility and let you know if your application has been sent to the employer. You can double check your eligibility here.

Employers will contact you directly to let you know the status of your application. 

You can review your application after you have submitted it, alongside the placement advert. This is especially useful if you have been invited to an interview.
