About this template

This form has been designed to capture all of the essential information that would be required from applicants for a position or vacancy. Although applicants can also still be requested to supply a CV/resume in addition (if required), the application form provides essential information for all of the applicants in a standard format that will make the process of reviewing and screening them easier. Also, very important is that job applicants are required to sign a formal declaration to the effect that they have been truthful in supplying all relevant information. The latter will hopefully cause any applicant who might otherwise be inclined to be less than truthful to “think twice”, or if an applicant is appointed and is subsequently found to have supplied false or misleading or withheld information which is used in the appointment process, then the company may have grounds to dismiss that person.


Once again, the format, lay-out and certain details on the Application Form can be modified or adapted as appropriate to meet your company’s specific needs.
