Potential vacancy arises

Assess the requirement to recruit to new post, or to refill existing post (your HR Business Partner is available to assist you with this):

  • is the role/function still required?
  • could the role/function be carried out by redistributing duties to other staff?
  • could the duties be outsourced – cost implications?
  • is the post full-time or part-time?
  • do you need someone permanently or for a short period of time? (fixed term)
  • does the job description need updating or do you need a new one?
