I have applied for a role at a local school. I used the county council's website to apply online. I received a confirmation e-mail saying it has been received.


The closing date was 10 days ago and i ad heard nothing. I have just spoke to the school to see if i had been shortlisted. They said:


1. My application was not received.

2. They have already interviewed and appointed somebody to the job.


Is there anything i can do? I'm prepared to get a solicitor onboard as i think this is a total injustice.


Thanks for any help you may be able to give.

Sorry, no, there is nothing you can do. You could write a complaint about what happened, but I doubt it is worth the energy.


I am a barrister specialising in employment law, and only represent employees. My advice on employment issues is advice - not legal opinion - and is based only on the facts you provide. If you want an accurate assessment of your case and prospects, you should get legal opinion from a lawyer - not a public forum. Anything I tell you is for guidance only, and is based on my experience of the law in the context of what details you provide.

Forget about applying for council jobs because as an outsider you will never get a job with them. All posts are now filled internally, but have to be advertsied external to be PCand to make it seem fair all round. Waste of taxpayers money. The same applies to police forces.
