This section outlines the online process for hiring employees to fill 'Core or Externally Funded Posts' using the (opens in a new window)Hiring & Employee Changes Forms on InfoHub.

A ‘core or externally funded’ post is one where salary costs are drawn from a School / Unit cost centre or an external source (excluding a research fund). If your costs are drawn from a Research Funded account you will instead need to visit the page.

Recruitment & Selection Policy

The Recruitment and Selection Policy provides detailed information on all parts of the hiring lifecycle. From advertising to interview and through to appointment, the Policy outlines the steps to be followed or suggests the approach to be taken.

The pages in this section contain a summary of a UCD policy, however, in all cases the Policy remains the definitive source of information on the topic. For more detail on an element of the hiring lifecycle please read the (opens in a new window)Recruitment & Selection Policy in the UCD Governance Document Library.
