Improving the efficiency of the academic recruitment process

To help streamline the recruitment process, we have reviewed the role that Academic Deans play in the process.

The shortlist for Academic, Teaching or Research roles at Grade 7 or above can now be signed off by any of the Deans or Associate Deans, instead of having to be referred to an academic member of UEB. Updated guidance on the approval of shortlist.

In addition, Academic Deans are no longer required to chair recruitment panels for Grade 7 Academic, Research or Teaching roles. Guidance on selection panel composition.

We hope that these changes will help streamline certain recruitment processes and also provide a greater consistency across Academic, Teaching and Research staff groups.
