The University of Glasgow is committed to a comprehensive policy of Equality of Opportunity in Employment in which all individuals are treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities. The University seeks to promote good recruitment and selection practices and to ensure that in all cases the best candidate for the position is appointed.
When recruiting staff it is important not to discriminate on any unfair or unlawful grounds e.g. sex, race, disability, marital status, sexual orientation and/or religion or belief. Part-time and fixed-term staff should similarly not be treated any less favourably.
Responsibility for ensuring that the correct procedures are followed lies with the School/RI/Service Manager responsible or recruiting and will be monitored by Human Resources. All who are involved in the recruitment and selection of staff are expected to observe these procedures and to ensure that their actions are consistent with the principles of these procedures. All members of each Appointing Committee must have undertaken training in recruitment and selection.
Further clarification on any aspect of these procedures can be obtained from Human Resources Service. Contact details are provided at the Human Resources Service Contacts website.
Agreed by the University Court in June 2007.
