Decision and taking up of references
The recruitment has now come to its final phase and it is time to make a decision. This decision must be well-reasoned and build on the bases established earlier in the process. The decision must also be the subject of collaboration the school collaboration group.
Evaluation and taking up of references
- Once all the interviews have taken place, the candidates must be evaluated. Evaluation should also be standardised and structured.
- Draw up a table of all candidates and the competence requirements stated in the advertisement’s appointment profile (and cross-checked at interview).
- Based on the competence requirements, award the candidates scores. If, in the planning phase, you agreed that certain competencies were more necessary than others, you can score these more highly.
- The top candidates (those ranked highest) should then have their references taken up.
- The taking up of references is the final part of the decision-making process. Its purpose is to confirm or rebut the picture that has been gained of the applicant. With the applicant’s consent, at least two referees (at least one of whom must be a manager) are to be contacted. The taking up of references should also be standardised and structured on the basis of the competencies in the appointment profile.
- The top candidate is to be offered the appointment and you are to agree on salary and when he/she is to start.
- The appointment is to be processed in the collaboration group and the decision then recorded in writing.
- This appointment decision must be posted so that other applicants can appeal ( see decision and processing of appeals in KTH appointment cases, only available in Swedish ).
The new appointment process is to end with a first-class induction.
