Human Resources, in partnership with Information Services, is to launch a new eRecruitment system, which will modernise recruitment at the University.
The web-based application, accessible through My Ed, will integrate, align and significantly improve recruitment administration and processes for recruiters.
The system will greatly enhance the applicant experience and candidates will be able to view and apply for vacancies through the new University Jobs Website.
Viewing internal vacancies will be restricted to University staff only and to do so staff should register their details on the site once it becomes live.
The eRecruitment administrative system will be available to recruiting staff from 8 October.
Applicants will be able to register their details and apply for vacancies from 15 October 2012.
A second phase of eRecruitment is planned for early 2013, which will deliver additional enhancements once the new system is embedded.
Training sessions for the new system are available for booking through MyEd. They can be accessed via the Providers drop down list for Human Resources.
User manuals will be available on the Human Resources website from 5 October.
Staff with any queries about the eRecruitment system should contact their local HR team.
For technical support, contact the HR Business Systems team.
Human Resources welcomes any feedback on the new system and anyone with suggestions or comments should contact Anna Edgar, Senior HR Partner- Resourcing.
eRecruitment will transform recruitment and talent management at Edinburgh. In addition to the Project team and the system provider, Core, I would like to thank everyone who has been involved, particularly the User Group, those attending workshops participating in testing and the HR community. Your feedback has been invaluable and I’m confident, as a result, we will all reap the benefits of using this first-class system”.
Director of Human Resources
