Recruiting staff at Western Sydney University
A step-by-step guide
An outcome of the MyVoice staff engagement survey was a recommendation that the University should improve the transparency of its recruitment and selection procedures.
The Recruitment and Selection Working Group was formed and tasked with developing new resources that would explain the Western Sydney University recruitment process more effectively to staff and to assist hiring managers throughout the job design, recruitment and selection process.
The Recruitment Process website has been developed as a tool to explain each phase of the recruitment cycle at Western Sydney University.
Hiring managers can refer to the 4-step recruitment process diagram below and then use the University's new Map Your Progress tool to track the progress of their own recruitment activities.
This website has been designed to assist hiring managers. It does not replace eRecruit (opens in a new window) - the system that is used to request advertising of positions and to make appointments.
Training in Recruiting the Right Person: Behavioural Interviewing is required for those who convene or are members of a selection committee to assist in the staff selection process for making informed hiring decisions. The information on this site should be used in conjunction with the Recruitment and Selection Policy.(opens in a new window)
