Job adverts for assistant psych/research psych

Post by IoanaR » Mon Aug 06, 2012 10:30 pm

Hi guys,

Just a quick question. When are AP/RP posts usually advertised?
For a September start(2013), when would it be best to start looking for a job?
Also, apart from this wonderful forum and the BPS, where would you recommend to look for these positions?

Thank you very much.

Welcome to the forum! :D

This thread is useful re: where to look for jobs

In my (admittedly limited) experience, more AP jobs seem to start coming up when people get offers from course interviews around april/may (you can keep an eye out on the forum for when the interviews are next year). So I would be keeping a keen eye out from march/april onwards, really. Also remember that it takes a while between application, interview, CRB check etc., and then actually starting, so applying this much in advance doesn't mean you will be starting that early in the year.

Do read the wikis and other forum posts about applying for AP jobs, hints/tips etc. e.g. viewtopic.php?f=21&t=16 as they are really useful for how to maximise your chances of getting a post which will, undoubtedly, have LOADS of applicants!!

Hope that's useful :)
