10.0 Selection

Selection methods may vary depending upon the requirements of a post.  Selection may include a panel interview, work simulation such as a written test or spreadsheet, presentation, numerical and verbal reasoning exercises, etc. 

The selection methods used will be appropriate and relate to job requirements and all decisions will be based on objective criteria.  Selection panels will reach agreement on the appointment decision by consensus.  The chair of the panel will be responsible for the final decision in the event agreement cannot be reached. 

Members of selection panels will aim to reflect the diversity of the College population (e.g. contain at least one member of each sex).
