The University aims to recruit staff of the highest calibre through fair and robust processes. Decisions to recruit should be made in the context of an overall staffing plan, which takes into account longer term academic and/or operational needs alongside known resignations and retirements.
For positions subject to a selection process (all permanent and fixed term appointments greater than 12 months, with exceptions as noted below), the University uses a web based recruitment system, called ImpelHR, which enables managers to obtain approval to advertise, and then monitor and organise the recruitment campaign electronically.
Good human resource management practice, equal opportunity considerations and legislative obligations require that all vacant positions be advertised with the exception of:
Please note: If a role is to be offered to a candidate who requires a visa to allow them to work in New Zealand, Immigration NZ requires that we provide evidence that we have given New Zealanders the opportunity to apply for the position, therefore it must have been advertised appropriately – even if the role is a fixed term for less than 12 months.
Applicants apply directly to the Impel system, through our Careers site, and electronic workflow within the system assists with the majority of work associated with the selection process.
For further information on how to use the ImpelHR system, please refer to the Impel HR FAQ's section.
Once the preferred applicant has accepted an offer of employment, preparation for the new staff member can begin.
