Applicants must apply for both a place on the course and for the post with CDI at the same time. The job and the course go hand-in-hand, and the process of applying for a job and a place on the course happen concurrently. In order to secure an interview offer, prospective trainees will need to successfully obtain a course place offer from UCL. So, in order to be successful in recruitment, the University staff need to approve you as suitable for the course and CDI would also have to select you for the role via our separate interview process.

Please read the instructions in the application pack carefully and if you would like an informal discussion about this post please contact:
