The Hiring Manager is typically the person who is responsible for identifying the recruitment need, initiating recruitment, and acting as the main point of contact during the recruitment process. While others will be engaged throughout the recruitment and selection process and will provide input, the Hiring Manager is ultimately responsible for the hiring decision.
The Employment Equity Specialist, Equity experts and Equity Advisors will provide support, advice and oversight of the overall hiring process, in collaboration with Human Resources Services to ensure the process is equitable, inclusive and unbiased.
