Advertising timescales

Redeployee vacancies

All vacancies will be advertised initially to redeployees as set out in the Recruitment and Selection policy.

Internal only vacancies

All internal only vacancies will be advertised for a minimum of 7 days on StaffNet Job Opportunities.

Grade 1 and Grade 2 vacancies

The Works is a corridor project involving The University of Manchester, MMU and City South Manchester and aims to help local people into employment. The University has agreed to advertise all grade 1 and grade 2 vacancies at The Works prior to any external advertising. The vacancy will be removed after 7 working days and any suitable candidates will be referred to the Recruiting Manager within 10 working days from receipt of the vacancy.

External vacancies

All external vacancies will be advertised for a minimum of 7 days (for support and management posts) or 28 days (academic and research). 

It may be possible to reduce the advertising time if it is likely that it will be possible to recruit a 'resident worker', eg:

  • an EEA National
  • a non EEA National with settled status
  • a non EEA National with unrestricted permission to work in the UK

Where this is felt to be the case this should be discussed with People and OD.

The following external adverts will be placed on by default:

Academic - Grades 5-9 

Research - Grades 5-9

Academic related, PS, admin and management - Grades 6-9

Research Technicians - Grades 4-5

Upon request by a recruiting manager, PS Grade 1-5 vacancies can be placed on but this will not be done as standard.
