Recruitment and Selection

This is a mandatory half-day workshop for all Appointing Committee members who will sit on an interview panel representing the University of Glasgow, or for those who are otherwise significantly involved in the recruitment and selection of staff.  The workshop, which is delivered virtually via Zoom, covers practical advice for effective recruitment and selection and the opportunity to practice shortlisting and behaviour interviewing skills.

This workshop is always in high demand so we encourage colleagues to try to book as far in advance as possible, as well as considering whether others, who have had this training previously, could cover panel duties where needed at short notice.  Due to demand, it is unlikely that short notice/late requests to join a session will be able to be accommodated.

This course involves pre-course reading and/or work which you should be able to complete in around 30-60 minutes.

During the workshop you will:

  • recognise the legal and policy framework
  • learn more about the UofG recruitment and selection process and system
  • explore strategies for attracting suitably qualified candidates
  • short list application forms using the criteria considered essential
  • use the behavioural approach to interviewing (STAR) to ask relevant questions
  • select the most suitable applicant against the job description criteria
