Participating in the recruitment of new colleagues can be a rewarding and enriching experience.  We want to help you make the best hiring choices for your department and for Brandon University.

Quick Access Guide – Recruitment Online Training


Human Resources has created A Guide to Faculty Recruiting  to assist you in this process.  The guide offers advice ranging from determining job criteria to job postings, and from shortlisting candidates appropriately to interviewing candidates successfully. While this guide contains valuable information regarding the areas of protected Human Rights, the duty to accommodate, and the privacy rights of candidates, it is offered as a tool to assist you in your faculty searches.  It is not intended to be the only resource for you to use, but it has been tailored to Brandon University.

As a reminder, prior to the start of a selection process, selection committee members, including the Chair, are required to participate in the faculty recruitment training (in accordance with Article 7.1 (a) of the BUFA Collective Agreement).  It is the responsibility of the Chair to ensure all members of the committee are aware of this requirement and to verify that the requirement has been satisfied with Human Resources.

We have also provided some quick reference sheets for you as you move along the recruitment process.

At any time, should you need further information or simply have questions about hiring, please contact the Human Resources office at (204) 727-9782 or

Good luck to you as you hire the best and the brightest!

Just as the Faculty Guide to Recruiting was created to assist those involved in the recruitment of new faculty members, the Non Academic Recruitment Guidelines were created to aid those who participate in the recruitment of administrators and support staff.  These guidelines will help support the recruitment of MGEU, IUOE and Exempt staff.

Training workshops will be offered to help support those who may be participating in an upcoming recruitment.  For more information or to sign up for a workshop, please contact Erica Brown, Learning & Organizational Development Program Manager.
