Using the Oriel system

Applicants will need to create an account on the Oriel recruitment system before applying for a vacancy. Full details can be found in the Oriel Applicant User guide (see Oriel guide in resource bank). Registration will allow a medical applicant’s details to be logged by the application system in the event of an application for more than one specialty. Once you have created an account you can register your personal information. You should create an account on Oriel to generate a username and password and you then complete the registration process.

For medical applicants, find the vacancy which is listed as Public Health Medicine and proceed to the 'apply here' button. You may begin the registration process before applications open if you wish.

Applicants who come from a background other than medicine must also create an account and complete the registration section. To create the correct registration questions the answer to ‘Which Staff group are you interested in applying to?’ must be Public Health Non-Medical, as shown below:
