Christmas 2017 Recruitment Deadlines

Please note the following deadline dates regarding advertising of vacancies, shortlisting and interviews in the lead up to the 2017 University Christmas closure period.

Monday 11 December 2017                                                                                                        

In order to meet Jobs.ac.uk advertising deadlines, completed advertising paperwork for vacancy placement in the final edition of Jobs.ac.uk need to be received in the HRRecruitment@port.ac.uk  mail box before 4:15 pm on the 11 December.

This is the final date for the system to be updated with your shortlisting decisions; this will enable the HR Service Centre (HRSC) to process regrets before interview and invitations to interview before Christmas. Any system updates made after this date will be processed for interview to be held in January 2018.

Wednesday 13 December 2017

This is the final date to submit completed advertising paperwork for vacancies being advertised on UoP recruitment website only.  

Monday 18 December 2017                                                                                                  

This is the final date for the online recruitment system to be updated with your interview decisions; this will enable the HR Service Centre to send out either confirmation of the verbal offer made, or regret after interview emails.

Saturday 23 December 2017 - Tuesday January 2 2018                                               

The recruitment system will not be monitored during the Christmas period so any queries will not be picked up until Wednesday 3 January 2017. Recruiting managers and panels will be able to view any applications received during this period, but no action will be undertaken by the HR Service Centre to correspond with candidates during the Christmas closure period. This message will also be displayed on the online recruitment system so that candidates are aware. 

Friday 5 January 2018

The HR Service Centre will start processing vacancies that closed after the University Christmas closure period, which have been reviewed and shortlisted during the first 3 days after returning to work.

If you have any queries please contact Leanne Prescott, HR Officer for Recruitment on internal ext 3608, or Recruitment ext 6611.
