Advertising/Closing dates during Christmas closure
Christmas closure dates: 23 December 2015 to 3 January 2016


Christmas Advertising

We recommend avoiding advertising vacancies during the weeks immediately prior to and after the Christmas break as we tend to receive a lower response rate from applicants during this time.

If you do wish to advertise around the Christmas vacation, please take note of the deadlines below.

Advertising documents

Deadline to receive finalised documents (detailed below) to advertise roles before the Christmas closure = 4 December 2015

Deadline to receive finalised documents (detailed below) to advertise roles with a proposed advertising date for w/c 4 January 2015 = 11 December 2015

By these dates your HR Adviser will need:

  • Your final advertising documents (Advert, Job Description, and Person Specification)
  • Funding authorisation from the Finance or Research division
  • The role to be uploaded on the WCN recruitment system
  • The HERA grading for the role to be finalised (support roles only)

 Please note: these deadlines relate to online advertising only. If you wish to advertise in a publication, the relevant copy deadlines will need to be factored into your timetable. Please consult with your HR Adviser for further information.

Closing dates during closure periods

We recommend avoiding having a closing date of a vacancy during the closure periods because the School is not open to answer candidate queries.

Single Nomination requests

Deadline to receive single nomination requests for committee consideration prior to Christmas break = 1 December 2015

Appointment paperwork will be produced within 5 working days from HR Adviser receiving the following:

  • the VCAC’s final approval of the appointment
  • Funding approval from the Finance or Research Division
  • Completed RF9/Request to Appoint form from the Department
