Recruitment & Selection Manual

The Recruitment & Selection Manual provides all the necessary information to ensure that the recruitment process is fair, efficient and effective ensuring equality of opportunity from when a post is first identified to  when the successful applicant is appointed.

The Chair of the interview panel should have attended the Equality & Diversity training which is provided by the Staff Development and we would also recommend that panel members attend Successful Recruitment training.
