The registration form does not accept international phone numbers. How do we resolve this for overseas candidates?

Why does the candidate registration form not accept international phone numbers?

If your phone number field does not accept international phone numbers, this is because it has been set up as a number field. This means that any phone numbers which include the country code (e.g. +44) will not be accepted. 

There are two ways to solves this problem:

You can either change the field to a text field so that it can accept the '+' symbol, or alternatively you can add a hint to the number field, asking users to only enter numbers into the field (e.g. 0044 rather than +44).
