Once your advert has closed your Consultant will provide you with a longlist of candidates via SharePoint whose skills match the job specification.
You will be responsible for completing the shortlisting and feedback for all applicants. The shortlisting feedback sheet requires you to complete the name of the candidate, whether you would like to “progress”, “regret” or “put on hold” the candidate and give one justification as to why you have come to your decision.
Shortlisting must be conducted by 2 individuals, independently, to ensure a fair approach has been given.
Please be aware that we do not provide candidates with detailed feedback at the application stage as standard.
Edinburgh Napier University is committed to ensuring that our recruitment process and experience is welcoming and inclusive to all potential applicants. As a member of the Disability Confident scheme, we aim to have a fully inclusive and accessible recruitment process, and make every reasonable effort to provide or arrange necessary support and adaptations for those who need it.
We are able to offer and accept a manual application form (instead of online) if that is required to aid the application process, and we are able to accept only a CV for some roles too. If applicants wish to identify with the scheme, they can request reasonable adjustments during the interview process, for example:
- Ensuring we have full accessible interview spaces
- Changing the lighting or room layout as necessary
- Offering an alternative to a standard interview, for example a working interview or allowing extra time
- Allowing applicants to complete a written test using a computer
If any applicants have a particular request or requirement during any stage of the recruitment process, please get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org.
