Recruitment and Selection

Extracts from this document...


Recruitment and Selection Unit 15, Task 1 (P1) Introduction; In this assignment, I will produce a written report that will allow me to demonstrate an understanding of the importance of human resource techniques and practises in relation to recruitment and selection. Introduction to task 1; In this task I will look at East Berkshire College, identifying and describing the different stages in the process of planning recruitment and selection. Supply and demand; Supply and demand is when there is need for new employees to fill vacancies. The college may need to recruit new individuals, and this could be due to; more students coming to join the college on their preferred course, a member of staff retiring, or maybe a member of staff leaving for a job role in a different organisation. The college would have to make sure that they have enough members of staff to teach these students, and that the members of staff have the right skills for the subjects as the college has many different subject areas, such as; construction, business, hair and beauty, art and I.T. The college would also have to make sure that they look after their employees so they do not leave, they can do this by; offering them more money, giving them more holidays and also making sure that students are handing work in on time. Overall it is important for the college to advertise their jobs effectively, this way they will have the right skilled individuals applying for specific job roles. ...read more.

The process doesn't take very long; it is normally 2 people in the room interviewing the individual, the individuals that get short listed get chosen by who has the right skills, and who will be the best for the company, and who will be able to offer more. Complying with legislation; It is important that the college keep up to date with the legislation laws as they tend to change at times. The following are important, and will need to be applied; * Sex discrimination act 1975 and 1986 * Race relations act 1976 * Equal pay act 1970 * Disability discrimination act 1995 * Employment act 2002 It is important that the college apply all acts, by applying them they will be making the college a better place to work as it will be principled. For example; if an individual applied for a job, and they were disabled in some way, but they had the right skills and could offer a lot to the college, they would have to be employed. There are some disadvantages if these legislations are not applied at work, the college could get fined, and could face court. So overall, it is very important that they are used. References; It is important that the individual supplies the employer with references, these references could be; a tutor from college, a manager at work. By looking into this, you will be able to find out a lot about the individual, for example; time-management, attitude and behaviour, and whether or not they can be trusted. ...read more.
