Selection committees

Selection committees are formed to:

  • assess candidate applications
  • assess interview performance
  • consider referee reports
  • evaluate results from other assessment tools (if used)
  • ultimately appoint someone to a position

Selection committees are usually comprised of a diverse range of people including backgrounds, profession and gender.

Depending on the position there are different requirements for the make-up of the selection committee. See the Recruitment, Selection and Appointment of Academic, Teaching and Professional Staff Procedure

The selection committee chairperson is responsible for coordination of the selection process. This is usually the person responsible for the recruitment.
