     Job Shadow Brochure 2015      

2015 Job Shadows are listed below:

You can arrange your own job shadow outside of this scheme,
but you must have the permission of your own, and your shadowee's line manager.

How do I apply to shadow someone?

Step 1. Take a look at the list of available job shadows.

Step 2. Once you have identified which role you would like to shadow, you will need to check with your line manager and obtain their permission to apply.

Step 3. Complete the online or paper version of the application form in full. 

NOTE: Make sure you send the application form to your own department coordinator so they can liaise with the department you wish to shadow.

Step 4. You will receive confirmation from your coordinator regarding your shadow.

Step 5. Enjoy your shadow! Make sure you complete the feedback form and if you can, please take a photo and return these to your coordinator!

When applications are closed for the scheme, we would encourage you to make your own job shadow arrangements with the permission of your line manager. You do not have to wait for the 'official' scheme in order to arrange a job shadow.
