Employing staff should not be taken lightly, WASCA recommends seeking advice from a Human Resources consultant for specific details for your situation.

There are a number of steps that can be taken to ensure the best person is recruited for any available positions:

Prepare an advertisement to recruit suitable applicants for the position.

  • Be clear in defining the roles and responsibilities as well as the personal and technical skills that are desirable.
  • Preparing a written job description can make this process easier and is an essential piece of documentation once the correct person is employed. Job descriptions provide a brief overview of the role, how it relates to your school/canteen vision, and a list of key responsibilities, requirements and qualifications. The job description spells out what is expected of the employee and provides the direction to achieve successful job performance.
