Recruitment and selection in higher education

Getting the best employees, with the right skills and abilities, is an essential requirement for universities to meet – and exceed – the expectations of students and stakeholders. Getting it wrong has cost and organisational impact, and may even mean starting from the beginning again.

This makes a strong business case for getting the recruitment process right; first time.

There are resource implications in undertaking recruitment, it costs money and people’s time so it is important to use that time and money in the most effective way. Additionally, Brexit’s withdrawal from the EU could adversely impact on the recruitment pool for universities, making effective recruitment and selection a critical activity.

Higher Education clients have increasingly asked us for e-learning courses that not only meet legal requirements, but also integrate inclusive recruitment to get the best person from the widest possible pool of candidates. We have had a great deal of feedback that universities want their colleagues to be as open as possible to whom the best candidate might be.
