UWA aims to attract the highest quality staff in all areas of its operations.

When preparing to recruit, managers and supervisors should develop a strategy to broaden the reach and diversity of a targeted pool of applicants.

Advertising is just one approach to attracting candidates and alternate search methods are to be considered.

There is a strict process to be followed when a vacancy arises in both academic and professional and general staff areas.
