Approval to Recruit

Every piece of recruitment, including the refiling of posts, first requires the hiring manager to complete an Approval to Recruit form. This captures all the necessary details to enable advertising of a post. This is an online form (available through HAWK) which may be completed independently or with support from a member of the recruitment team.

To access HAWK, you will need to know your single sign-on account details. If you are unsure of these details, please contact IT services:


A high-level overview of the recruitment process is summarised below. A member of the recruitment team will support managers throughout the process.
