Recruitment Policy

The recruitment and selection process is of paramount importance in order to recruit staff with the necessary skills and attributes to enable the University to fulfil its corporate aims and objectives. The Recruitment and Selection Policy and Procedures aim to provide clear guidance to managers in relation to both the selection and appointment of staff. This policy promotes and supports good practice for those with responsibility for recruitment.

This policy and procedures aim to achieve the following objectives:

Recruit staff with the appropriate skills, both technical and personal, in order to meet the University’s current and future needs.
To ensure that staff appointed to posts involving teaching responsibilities are qualified to carry out such duties or are working towards an appropriate qualification.

Work to a fair and effective recruitment procedure, which is consistent with employment legislation and the University’s equal opportunities policies and practices.
Develop and enhance the public image of the University, both as an employer and as a quality provider of education and research.
Internal candidates or others personally known to the interview panel must be treated in exactly the same way as all other candidates.

This policy and associated procedures applies to all members of staff other than senior postholders as defined in the Articles of Association.

Additional guidance on the procedures to be followed in the recruitment of atypical and casual staff is provided separately.
