Candidates who are interested in the position

may feel they are not strong on individual

selection criteria.

In assessing merit, the panel will take into

consideration “performance or achievement

relative to opportunity”. We recognise that

many staff today have a range of personal

circumstances, and career histories that

challenge traditional ideas of an academic

staff member. This may mean, for example,

prioritising the quality of achievement rather

than the quantity, as considerations of part-

time employment, career interruptions and

significant periods of leave are taken into

account when assessing performance or

achievement.

The selection panel is also committed to

conducting a process which is fair and free

from bias, including unconscious bias.
