Recruitment information and documentation (non-teachers)

Congratulations! You have been directed to this page as you have either been successful in securing an interview with North Yorkshire County Council or you have been offered and accepted a position with the council.

In either case, this page contains important information for you to read and certain documents which are necessary for you to complete and return to our employment support service. We require this information from you to progress your application or employment, therefore it is important for you to return any forms as quickly as possible - we do not want you to experience any unnecessary delays.

As an applicant, you will require a number of information documents, guidance notes and forms as part of the recruitment process. This section will provide you with the necessary information which you will need at each stage. You can also   view our policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders here (pdf / 127 KB) (pdf / 127 KB).

Interview stage

If you are attending an interview with us, please review the information below. Please note, the 'asylum and immigration' document is relevant to everyone, whereas the relevancy of the other documents in this section will be dependent on the post you have applied for. Please refer back to the details of the post if you are unsure.

Conditional offer stage

If you have been appointed to a position, please ensure you review the information below and complete the necessary actions as soon as possible. This section contains forms which we need you to complete to help us finalise your appointment and confirm a date for you to start in post. Please note, it is essential to provide your bank details in order for us to pay your salary directly into your bank account - this is the quickest way for you to receive payments due. You are only required to complete the 'HMRC' starter checklist if you are not able to provide a P45. Please note that the Local Government Pension FundOpens new window website also contains important information for you.

Information for new employees

If you have your start date confirmed and are a new employee to North Yorkshire County Council, the  pay and reward booklet (pdf / 681 KB) provides you with detailed information about pay, rewards and benefits which is important for you to be aware of. You can also read our  total rewards brochure (pdf / 1 MB) for more general information about the rewards and benefits of working for the council. Once you have started in your new post, you will be able to access our internal website (the intranet) which provides information to staff.

Particular areas which would be useful for you as a new employee are:

  • Probation and induction;
  • Employee benefits schemes;
  • Training and learning; and
  • MyView (an internal system where you can access information about your pay, submit leave requests, timesheets and more).

Your manager will support you with this. However, in the meantime, please contact the employment support service if you have any questions about the information contained on this page.
