Cadence Partners are using Applied, a new application platform developed by the Behavioural Insights Team, to record your application. Applied is focused on using behavioural and data science to improve hiring decisions and minimise unconscious bias in the recruitment process. You will be asked to respond to three questions which will allow you to express your match against the person specification. Your answer to each question will be viewed in isolation, and reviewed against the job specification. Please therefore ensure there is enough evidence and detail in each individual response, without any reference to your other answers.

NB: Whilst we do also ask for your CV, please note that we will not be viewing your CV during the initial sift process, so it is therefore essential that you respond to each question fully.
