As soon as possible after the advert closing date, review the applications for the following :
Applications must first be checked for candidates with priority status (identifiable by the priority candidate letter, and/or by the priority candidate field in the 'Additional questions' section of the application). A separate shortlisting pack of only priority candidates should be sent to the selection panel, along with the link to the relevant guidance on priority candidates, ideally before other applications are considered.
Applications made outside the recruitment system
- Off-line applications (manual/paper)
These can be accepted in exceptional circumstances, for example if a candidate cannot apply online due to a disability.
- College applications
College employees may apply for internal-only vacancies but are not able to submit applications directly on-line via the University jobs website so their applications will need to be uploaded manually.
HR system steps: add off-line applications before creating the shortlisting pack
Right to return
Ensure any candidate who have previously worked at the University have the right to return (for example, if an individual left through ill-health retirement, or under a settlement agreement, as they may be ineligible to work for the University again).
HR system steps: update the 'Right to Return' User Defined Field when the check has been completed.
HR system steps: once the above checks have been completed, create a Shortlisting Pack for the selection panel.
