The aim of the Recruitment and Selection Policy is to ensure that Fire Services and Supplies select the most suitable person for the job on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities and that no employee/job applicant is unfairly treated on any grounds including:
- Ethnic or national origins
- Actual or perceived Aids/HIV status or perceived association with an HIV positive person
- Marital status
- Social background
To protect the privacy of candidates and to preserve the integrity of the recruiting process, all search committee members are required to maintain confidentiality throughout and after the conclusion of the recruitment process. Confidential information includes matters discovered or discussed during the recruiting process. All information relating to the search may only be discussed with other search committee members, Human Services or administrators in the chain of command of the hiring department. Employees who violate this requirement for confidentiality will be subject to corrective or disciplinary action. In order to monitor compliance with and the effectiveness of this policy, a member of the Human Resources department may be invited to or elect to be present at any stage of the recruitment process.
If any employee/job applicant considers that he or she has been unfairly treated in relation to the recruitment and selection policy, he/she can make a complaint which will be dealt with in accordance with the agreed procedures.
The policy will be kept up to date, particularly as the business changes in nature and size. To ensure this, the policy and the way in which it is implemented will be reviewed annually.
