Effective Recruitment

We have collated a number of resources that will be useful when recruiting, selecting and inducting new staff:

Employer Brand

Our careers site is dedicated to attracting people to build a career less ordinary and do what they love by working in students' unions.  The Union Development team support the running of the site and ensure your job advert is seen by diverse audiences, and across various social media platforms so that you get great talent applying. 

Recruiting Coordinators Toolkit

We've been working with a group of students' unions in the London area on their challenges around attracting, recruiting, selecting and developing talent, particularly Coordinators. By focussing on this group, we hope to apply that learning to help attract and retain talented people to develop their careers in students' unions. 

We have created a set of supporting resources, broken down into nine areas. You can download them individually below or as one document here.
