Recruiting effectively over Christmas and New Year

Published: Tuesday 11th October 2016

Are you a manager or supervisor who expects to recruit staff for commencement in early 2017?

As the end of the year fast approaches it is important to consider and plan for your recruitment activity over the Christmas and New Year period.

With colleagues taking leave, coupled with public and University holidays, it’s a challenging time to coordinate selection committees and administrative support. Also, with the external candidate market tending to ‘slow down’ from early December to the end of January, attracting and engaging suitable candidates for ACU’s employment opportunities can also be difficult.
