Please be aware that if you withdraw your application you cannot then reapply for the vacancy via your online recruitment account.

I have applied for a number of positions with the same job title (e.g. Research Assistant/Associate). I have now received an email advising me that I have not been selected for interview, however, I am unable to identify which job the email refers to as it does not contain the vacancy reference number. How can I find out this information?

If you wish to learn the status of a particular application, log into your online recruitment account and check the status of your application in the Jobs Applied For section on your welcome page.
