Recruitment and Selection Training

Published in the Research School of Physics Event Horizon
Vol44 Issue5 4–8 February 2019

Dear Colleagues,

Staff within the ANU who supervise an individual or team (or who may do so in the future), are required to have undertaken Recruitment & Selection of Staff Training (RMHR02) to be able to act as Chair on a Selection Committee. This training is important, as it enables participants to:

Understand ANU recruitment and selection procedures, and best practice methodology; Know how to attract, select and recruit the best person for a position; and Understand their role as a Chair or member of a Selection Committee.

Due to the low number of staff within the College of Science, College of Health & Medicine and Joint Colleges of Science who have undertaken this training, we have engaged the Central HR Division to facilitate a Science/Medicine specific training session in February. This session will include information relating to Science specific recruitment practices, and will include time for Q&A with your Science HR team afterwards. Attendance at this session is at no cost and will be recorded in your ANU training profile.


Details of the session are:

  • Date: Monday 11 February 2019
  • Time: 1:30pm (2 hour session + 15 minutes for Q&A afterwards)
  • Location: Finkel Lecture Theatre, John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR), 131 Garran Road, Acton
  • Requested Attendees: Academic Staff Level C and above & Professional Staff ANU Officer Level 8 and above. It is also suggested that School Administrators (regardless of level) attend, so they can assist School staff with information around appropriate recruitment processes.


You are able to check if you have attended this training in HORUS > Training > View Training Summary > RMHR02/Recruitment & Staff Selection.


To ensure that this is captured in your training summary in HORUS, please ensure that you register to attend via Eventbrite no later than COB Wednesday 6 February 2019.


Should you have any questions regarding this, feel free to contact your local HR team.


Kind Regards,
