The University of Otago currently uses an online recruitment system called Taleo.
The recruitment team, in conjunction with HR Systems, offers a range of training and support options to users of the online recruitment system.
There is a classroom based training course available. This course will give participants exposure to the workings of the University’s recruitment process and system. In addition to hands on practice there are also opportunities to discuss and work through contextual recruitment examples.
Reference guides and factsheets
The ‘Online recruiting – Hiring Manager Process Guide’ is an end-to-end recruitment guide focused on the process and how to operate Otago’s recruitment system Taleo.
You can also download handy factsheets for specific tasks in Taleo (under Useful Tools).
When setting up a requisition in the Recruitment System, you'll need to enter information on the job family, job field and occupation. This structure gives the University accurate information for a variety of business reasons, such as identifying groups of staff, workforce planning and statistical reporting.
Being an online system, there are certain system requirements for using the recruitment system, including supported operating systems and browsers.
