Advertisement Policy

September 1, 2015

Introduction

All recruitment exercises must be planned and timetabled to ensure the School recruits the best possible staff. Prior to the commencement of any recruitment exercise a job description and person specification should be prepared for the vacant role. This will confirm that there is a genuine need for recruitment, and will assist the School in ensuring that the most appropriate candidate is recruited for the role. A detailed timetable for the recruitment process, including the placing of the advertisement and details of the personnel to be involved in the process should be drawn up and approved by the Head before the vacancy is advertised.

Responsibility

The Head is responsible for all advertised vacancies at the School.

Clearance

No advertisements should be published until approved by the Head. This applies to internal as well as external advertisements.

Liability

Inappropriate or poorly worded advertisements can give rise to legal claims against the School. Anyone placing an advertisement in breach of this policy will be subject to the School’s disciplinary procedure.

Advertisement Content

All adverts must carry the following information:

    “The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
    Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).”
