To meet these aims, all permanent posts and fixed-term contracts of 3 months duration or longer, should be externally advertised.
(An exception may be made for posts longer than 3 months but less than 6 months duration with the agreement of the link HR Business Partner.)
Please follow the appropriate link below for the recruitment of the following staff:
Exceptions to external recruitment
There may be occasions where a job is restricted to internal-only applicants or restricted to a particular work area or group of staff; examples are listed below and in all instances prior consultation with HR is required.
Where an internal secondment is being considered on a short-term temporary basis usually no more than 12 months. A 'secondee' will not normally be confirmed in post unless they are successfully appointed following an external recruitment process.
If a job-share employee leaves their job, the remainder of the post may be offered to the remaining job-sharer in the first instance.
The Oxford Brookes Graduate internship offers opportunities for Brookes recent graduates to gain valuable work experience with mutual benefits for the University and the graduate.
The Director of Human Resources may approve that a job is restricted to internal-only applicants for any other reason that is not in conflict with the spirit or principles of the Recruitment and Selection or any other university policy.
