Recruitment and Selection Forms

Forms to be completed for vacancy advertising and appointment

Below you will find forms to be used in the recruitment and selection process.

The Bulletin Schedules have been replaced for all posts, with vacancies going live within 5 working days of receipt by HR.  All vacancy authorisation forms must now be signed off by Head of Service.

In order for the 5 day service level agreement to be achieved, and in line with the council's agreed Recruitment and Selection Procedure, all vacancies received by HR must include the following:  

  • vacancy authorisation form signed by Head of Service
  • job advert
  • job outline and person specification
  • any other relevant information

Please note if received without the correct paperwork requests will be rejected and you will need to resend the full documentation once corrected.

Further information and guidance on the Recruitment & Selection Policy and Procedure can be found on Recruitment and Selection policy page

Vacancy Advertising

Please note that the vacancy authorisation form has been amended to reflect the requirement for all managers involved in the recruitment process to have completed the e-learning Recruitment & Selection module.  The officer who is responsible for completing/submitting the vacancy authorisation form must now sign the form to confirm that all managers who are to be involved in the recruitment process for that vacancy have completed the training in the last 2 years.  This must be done prior to the vacancy authorisation from being submitted to the relevant Head of Service for authorisation.  The recruitment and selection training is available on MyLearning and should take around 20-25 minutes to complete
