Processing applications Staff must be aware that when dealing with enquiries about vacancies that it is unlawful to state or imply that applications from one gender or from a particular racial group, age group, sexual orientation or religion/belief would be preferred, (unless a genuine occupational qualification or requirement applies) and to do so may lead to a complaint of unlawful discrimination. Care must also be taken that all applicants are treated in the same way, for example, with regard to invitations to visit the department, informal meetings to discuss the vacancy, and provision of information. However, it is acceptable to respond to requests from individual candidates who demonstrate initiative in their preparation. The confidentiality of applications must be respected by all of those involved in the selection process. 7. Shortlisting After the closing date has passed, applications from candidates may be shortlisted. This decision should be based on evidence that the applicant has met the requirements of the person specification. The original applications from all applicants, together with a written note of reasons for shortlisting or rejection, must be retained for a minimum of six months from the date that an appointment decision is notified, in case of complaint to an employment tribunal. All photocopies of application forms must be shredded. 8. Criminal conviction declaration forms Criminal declaration forms belonging to candidates who have not been short-listed for interview will remain sealed and will be shredded. Shortlisted candidates’ forms will be opened and checked for relevant convictions. If it is deemed that a conviction is relevant to the post, the candidate may be withdrawn from the list of interviewees. Further guidance on this can be found in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Policy (and the application pack guidance notes). 9. Arrangements for interviews Letters or emails to short-listed candidates should include: date, time and place of their interview travel directions to the interview venue a request that they contact the author of the letter/message if they have any special requirements in relation to the interview (related to access to the venue or any other special need related to a disability) if appropriate, details of any test or presentation they will be required to do, or anything that they should bring with them (e.g. examples of work or proof of qualifications that are essential to the post).
