Recruitment & Selection Co-ordinators' (RSCs') Network Update
Departmental RSCs play a vital role in the recruitment and selection of staff. During November 2008, HR ran a number of introductory briefing sessions for staff who have been identified by their Heads of Departments as the RSC for their area. Information was shared on the role and responsibilities of the RSC, the action required due to legislative changes in assessing eligibility to work and the forthcoming introduction of e-Recruitment. The on-going training programme for RSCs will continue through January 2009 with further sessions on eligibility to work and the new Points Based Immigration (PBS) immigration system, as well as briefings on the impact of our new Two Ticks status on the recruitment of applicants with disabilities. Further recruitment and selection training opportunities for RSCs, including e-Recruitment, will be rolled out throughout 2009.
