I can see the list of vacancies but the Apply button is greyed out.
To start an application for a vacancy click on the grey square to the left of the job title, this will highlight the line, which will turn orange. You are then able to click the Apply button. This will display the advert details and the job specification via the “About The Job” link.
I have clicked on the Apply button and nothing is happening.
When you click Apply the recruitment system is trying to open a new window to allow you to process your application. If nothing is happening your popup blocker settings within your browser will be preventing the window from opening. You can choose to either turn off your popup blockers or allow popups specifically for jobs.shef.ac.uk
Popup blocker settings are in different places for different browsers. Guidance regarding popups is provided on our Jobs website at www.shef.ac.uk/jobs/erecbrowsers
