and desirable specifications
You will need to decide which skills, experiences,
qualifications are essential to the
job and which are only desirable.
Essential means that this is the minimum
criterion needed to carry out the job and the job cannot
de done without these criteria. No one without these
criteria will be offered the job, no matter what other
attributes they might posses.
Desirable refers to those criteria
which are not essential, someone could do the job without
this. If more than one candidate satisfies the essential
criteria, specified desirable attributes can be taken
into account in selection (it may be useful to set out
the desirable criteria in order of priority).
Attributes not identified as either essential or desirable
should not be taken into consideration in the selection
For University of Nottingham roles in which are in
either the Administrative, Managerial & Professional,
or the Technical job family please also refer to specific
guidance and documents from HR (UoN
