The University requires a fair and transparent process to fill vacant positions. It is generally accepted that Selection Committees provide an appropriate mechanism to support transparent merit-based selection.
The purpose of a selection committee is to assess the comparative merit of each applicant and to recommend the appointment of the best person for the job. The deliberations of the selection committee should at all times remain confidential.
The Chair of the selection committee, must have attended Staff Selection Training prior to the Selection Committee convening. It is recommended that all Selection Committee members attend training before participating on a Selection Committee.
