Recruiting IT Support Staff

- OUCS can help!

The IT Support Staff Services (ITS3) section of IT Services offers help to colleges and departments in recruiting good IT Staff. There is no charge for this service and it can make a real difference both to the effectiveness of the recruitment process and the suitability of new staff members.

From wide experience ITS3 can help with:

  • Formulating job descriptions

  • Writing effective job adverts and person specifications

  • Grading and salary for posts (for colleges)

  • Advice on HERA grading by HERA-trained staff (for departments)

  • Devising selection criteria

  • Shortlisting

  • Interview questions

  • Written and practical tests

  • Induction of new staff

Interview-trained IT Services staff members, of suitable seniority for the post being recruited, are available to join interview panels if required.

From a college recently using this service:

“I know your input from start to finish has been invaluable and has made what could have been a stressful process, a pain free experience”

Contact its3@oucs.ox.ac.uk or ring (2)83354 for more information.

Your primary support for IT issues comes from your department or college. Your first port of call for questions or advice should always be your local IT support.
