How to Apply

Thinking about applying?

Applying for SWYM is a simple process! Here’s an outline of what to expect when you start your application…

Step 1: Fill in an Application Form
The first step is to complete our online application form. Once you have created your account, one of our team will be in touch to help you complete the form. You will be able to save your progress through the application form and return to it later if you need.
Step 2: References & Interview
As part of the application process, we will take up three references and conduct an initial interview. The interview will usually take place at one of our Open Days, or at the SWYM Office.
Step 3: Visit a Ministry Partner
Following a successful interview, we will work to find a potential placement with one of our ministry partners. The ministry partner will usually invite you to visit for a placement interview. This is also an opportunity for you to get a feel for the placement and work out if it may be where God is calling you.
Step 4: Sign Agreements
Once all the checks (e.g. Safeguarding) and arrangements have been made, the Placement and Training Agreements will be signed ready for you to start. 
Step 5: Get Started
Trainees will usually start at the beginning of September, with our Induction and first Conference. You will then head to your placement ready to get involved with the work on the ground.
