During the implementation a business process review was undertaken and the standard functionality of the system was significantly enhanced to meet the specific requirements of the University. It has delivered significant and measurable benefits and provides an enhanced experience for both applicants and departments. To learn more about e-Recruitment's benefits click here.

The e-Recruitment system has subsequently been adapted to support the contract management processes for existing staff and the staff redeployment processes. In the 18 months leading up to January 2015, Human Resources and CiCS worked to improve e-Recruitment further. For details of the enhancements, please visit our e-Recruitment Upgrade Project page.
