QMUL has invested in the Lumesse I-Grasp e-recruitment system and is deploying the new e-enabled process throughout QMUL. As at April 2012, the new system is fully deployed across the School of Medicine and Dentistry and the majority of Academic and Professional Services Departments.
The key driver for the system’s introduction is to streamline the University’s recruitment processes to deliver improved candidate quality and experience at a reduced cost, in a speedier and more efficient manner. The system is designed to handle every stage of the recruitment process, from job initiation and authorisation through to candidate sourcing, management, long-listing, selection and offer.
The system does not completely replace the need for face-to-face communication, as remains a vital aspect of any recruitment process. However, it succeeds in automating the majority of the current, administration-heavy, paper-based processes.
In April 2011, the College launched a new centralised recruitment service. Headed up by myself, the team will extend the roll out of e-recruitment to the remainder of the College. The objective is to complete the roll out across QMUL by Summer 2012.
