To ask if you can apply for 2 jobs at the same organisation?

Just posting for the traffic as one deadline is tonight!

Both jobs are the same grade, however, working with different user groups.

I have more experience with the 2nd job spec but as they're effectively asking for the same criteria I'm wondering if I should also go for job 1.

Will I risk limiting my chances and looking like I'm just randomly applying if I go for both. I can't back up competency questions for job 1 as well as I could for job 2.

Should I just let job 1 go and put all my efforts into job 2?

I'd apply for both.

Of course.

As long as you tailor your statement to each job, shows you've thought about it and aren't applying for every job out there. Good luck.

Apply for both.

I have applied for 5-6 roles with the same company before if I like them all - but be prepared to justify yourself if they call you out on it

I've done it before. Not a problem, just go for it. Increases your chances!!!

My organisation would positively approve of this course of action.

My organisation would be fine, just tailor your statement accordingly.

We had a guy who applied for nearly every management position at our charity, telling us how much he wanted to work there. His persevere paid off after a few years!
