Getting the very best candidate to fulfil the job is in the interests of everyone.  It ensures the job is done the best it can be – this is an advantage to both the organisation and citizens of Kosovo.  Getting the best candidate is in the interests of all candidates – whether or not it is you – this is a mark of a fair and credible recruitment process.

Merit Based Recruitment Resources

In early 2020, training events were held for HR Managers in Central and Municipal public institutions.  The purpose of these sessions was to extent the understanding and application of merit-based selection.  Delegates were provided with a merit-based assessment toolkit, as well as a range of resource slides introducing the methodology.  Both resources can be accessed below.
