Recruitment toolkit for JISC digital repository projects
Recruiting staff for JISC projects can be difficult and can pose severe risks to project timescales and outputs. Many repository projects funded under the Repositories and Preservation Programme 2006-09 experienced problems with recruitment.
To help with this problem JISC commissoned Brunton Consultancy Ltd to prepare a toolkit for recruiting to JISC projects with a specific focus on the digital repository area.
The toolkit deals with the whole recruitment process from planning through advertising to interviewing and the job offer. Any JISC project dealing with digital repositories planning to recruit should read the toolkit as it is full of good advice, useful resources and templates.
While the toolkit is focused on digital repositories, most of the advice offered will apply to every JISC project that is planning to recruit.
The toolkit consists of one main document and associated templates, and useful resources. All templates and resources are linked from the main document so you only need to download that. However if you want to download the toolkit and all associated resources, a zipfile has been provided.
