Tampere University’s principles of recruitment
Transparent, fair recruitment processes
Our recruitment processes are transparent and take into account 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 a four-level research career model supported by the tenure track career path.
Application and recruitment process
As a rule, we recruit employees in accordance with our HR plan. At our University, human resource planning is strategic on all levels; it is ambitious, responsible, and sustainable and in line with our values and mission.
Our calls for applications are published and applications are submitted via our electronic recruitment system.
The appointment process involves people who are relevant to the vacancy. When necessary, preparatory groups manage the process of filling our vacancies.
We treat our applicants equally and consider the principles of equality and non-discrimination in our appointment decisions. During the recruitment process, we inform our applicants about the progress of the application process in suitable ways.
We use appropriate methods to assess our applicants such as peer review, interviews, presentations of research work, video interviews, psychometric tests, and assessments of teaching competence. We assess teaching competence when filling teaching-focused posts and, if necessary, other posts.
The appointment of employees is based on an overall assessment of the applicant’s competence and suitability for the vacancy which has formed during the recruitment process based on the applicant’s skills, experience, and other merits.
