Permission to recruit and personal competencies

A permission to recruit is needed for employments longer than six months and with a percentage of over 50%. The permission is the basis for the advertisment, so it is important that you think through and clearly write down what education, experiences and personal competencies the candidates should have.

The personal competencies are the basis for the competence-based interview questions that you can download from the recruitment system when it is time for interviews. You can choose from a large number of competencies that have been developed by Malin Lindelöw and selected by KTH.
