Select the most suitable candidate for a vacant post

Key points

  • Once all selection interviews, and any other assessment methods, are complete, the employer will have to make a firm decision on whom to recruit to the vacant post. All the information gleaned about the candidates on the shortlist should be examined carefully in order to make the selection.
  • When making the selection, the employer should refer to objective criteria identified as required or desirable for the role. It should consider applying weightings to each criterion to aid the comparison of candidates.
