Getting started

Some things to consider prior to commencing the recruitment process:

  1. consult with your local HR team
  2. familiarise yourself with the process of getting necessary approvals, with assistance from your local HR Team.
  3. use the Recruitment toolkit to develop a recruitment schedule, taking relevant deadlines and tasks into account.
  4. set some times aside for the following tasks:
    • completing the position description, selection criteria, advertisement and approval paperwork
    • creating a recruitment file
    • identifying and determining the availability of your selection panel
    • short listing, interviewing and evaluating candidates
    • preparing the interview and candidate paperwork for the shortlist meeting and interviews
    • organising interviews

Inform all staff that will be assisting you with the recruitment of the expected timelines and any tasks assigned to them so they can plan ahead.
