Latest version of Jobtrain launching soon

10 Mar 2020

Information for colleagues involved in recruiting staff

If you’re involved in recruiting staff you’ll notice some changes to our online recruitment system Jobtrain from March onwards as we upgrade to the latest version.

If you’re a hiring manager, recruitment panel member or a colleague working in the Directorate of Human Resources, you’ll find it easier to navigate Jobtrain thanks to a new quick links menu.

This short video show how you can move candidates between the different stages of the recruitment process, as well as being able to see each stage from application to shortlisting to interview on one screen.

This is part of ongoing work to improve the recruitment experience for both University colleagues involved in recruiting staff and potential candidates applying for roles.

At a later date more new features will be introduced to make it easier to request references online. Colleagues in the Directorate of HR are also looking at introducing anonymous shortlisting to support our University’s equality, diversity and inclusion commitments.

All of this is aimed at helping us to attract, recruit and retain the very best people as outlined in the Our People, Our Values theme of the University’s new strategic plan – Our future.

In the meantime you can access and use Jobtrain as usual using your existing username and password. Please continue to let the Recruitment team in HR Services know when you have completed shortlisting so they can advise unsuccessful candidates in a timely way.
