Tampere University’s principles of recruitment
Transparent, fair recruitment processes
Our recruitment processes are transparent and consistent with the principles of fairness, equality and non-discrimination. We mainly use an open recruitment process for filling vacancies. International recruiting is encouraged, and it is done in a goal-oriented manner.
Our University has adopted a four-level research career model supplemented by our separate guidelines on career path models.
Application and recruitment process
As a rule, we recruit employees in accordance with our HR plan. At our University, human resource planning is consistent with our strategy, reflect our core values and goals, have a long-term focus and be responsible and sustainable.
Our job advertisements are published and applications are submitted via our electronic recruitment system.
The appointment process involves people who are relevant to the vacancy. When necessary, appointment committees manage the process of filling our vacancies.
We treat our candidates equally and follow the principles of equality and non-discrimination when making hiring decisions. During the recruitment process, we inform our applicants about the progress of the application process in suitable ways.
We use the most appropriate methods to assess our applicants in each case, such as video interviews, expert reviews, interviews, research presentations, assessments of teaching competence or aptitude tests.
Hiring decisions are based on an overall assessment of the candidate's competence and suitability for the position which has formed during the recruitment process.
