Recruitment Panel Member Training

If you are new to recruitment panelling, you will need to attend our Recruitment and Selection training courses as advertised on Horizon Learning. These courses are also for staff engaged in recruitment requiring a refresher.

If there is an urgent need for panel training in between Recruitment and Selection sessions, the People Directorate may be able to provide an abridged training. To enquire about this, please complete this form.

When carrying out recruitment at the University of Greenwich, you will use the university's e-recruitment system and it is essential that interview panel members complete this e-recruitment online module before sitting on a panel.

Additional, optional training is also available: Interview Skills for Panel Members and Interview Skills for Candidates.
