What do the application statuses mean?

You will be sent an email notification when the status of your application changes. If you do not receive our emails please check your junk/spam email.

To learn the status of your submitted applications you will need to log into the ICIS ‘My Opportunities’ responsibility to view the “Notifications” section of your homepage.  You can do this either by:

  • Navigating to the College’s Employment website
  • Clicking on the red “Job Search for current Imperial College staff” button


  • Opening ICIS (please note that the system will not allow  you to have the Job Search screen and ICIS open at the same time). If you are not an existing ICIS user then you should click here to access ICIS Self Service 


  • log into the ICIS ‘My Opportunities’ facility and select the “Notifications” section of your home page.
