The University strives to recruit and retain high calibre staff and is committed to foster more equal opportunities to ensure delivery of equal pay for work of equal value.
In order to recruit to a new or vacant post you will need to complete the HR approval form for the post:
- Approval to recruit/amend/vary/extend all posts (HRRA)
- Associate lecturer appointment form
- Casual hourly paid support appointment form
Every post should have a job description that details the tasks and responsibilities of the job along with a person specification which encompasses the skills and experience required of the post holder. Both documents are an important part of the recruitment process, but the person specification is used as a short listing mechanism so it is essential that you consider this at the initial stage. For example, a person specification which is too broad or vague may mean that you have to shortlist a high volume of candidates.
Asylum and Immigration
A prospective employee is required to provide original documentation to prove his/her eligibility to work in the UK. All employees will be required to produce genuine approved document(s) and a list of these can be found within the Asylum and Immigration Verification - important information for candidates.
When designing a new role or revising a current role that requires a job evaluation you will need to provide a role profile. There are specific generic role profiles for both academic and support staff which may be amended and adapted.
