Applicants who have been approved as having special circumstances will be pre-allocated into the region of their choice, subject to the following criteria being met:


- Applicant is deemed appointable at interview/selection centre

- Applicants is ranked highly enough to receive an offer e.g if there are 10 posts available, the applicant will need to rank in the top 10.


Where applicants with special circumstances do not rank highly enough to be offered a post in the first round of offers they will be placed on a reserve list, pending more posts becoming available or offers being declined. There is no guarantee of matching special circumstances applicants to preferred locations after the first round of offers has been completed.
