All University posts must be advertised on the University’s jobs website.
Departments should consider advertising the post as an ‘internal-only’ vacancy in the first instance, especially where it is likely that an internal person could have the right skills and experience for the job, and as an opportunity to advertise the post to all priority candidates from across the University.
How and where to place the advertisement: Vacancies should be set-up in CoreHR, to appear on the University jobs website (see section 1 of CoreHR QRG: REC01 Creating a Vacancy (Recruitment and Personnel) (PDF)). Further requirements apply to Tier 2 visa eligible roles -for details please refer to the Staff Immigration Team website.
Once the vacancy has been set up email firstname.lastname@example.org to request authorisation, including the authorisation email from the Reward team. The Adverts team will check compliance with key University requirements, and will notify you when the vacancy has been authorised, or if any amendments are necessary.
Departments may wish to consider additional external advertising sources, such as specialist websites. For media advertising (eg specialist websites or magazines) the TMP advertising agency should be used. Please see the guidance below for further information. See also:
All jobs at grades 4 and above advertised on the University's jobs website (unless 'internal only') will be automatically placed on the jobs.ac.uk website by the Adverts Team. This site is an international job board for jobs in academic, research, science and related professions, in the Higher Education and related sectors.
