Recruitment Policies >

Staff recruitment is key to ensuring that the School retains a central role in the education of artists, designers and architects and we have an effective Recruitment and Selection Policy to ensure we continues to attract staff of the highest calibre.

In brief the policy and procedures are designed to facilitate effective recruitment and selection of candidates, cost-effectively and efficiently in a fair, consistent and transparent manner.

To ensure the GSA attracts and retains excellent staff, the School will provide financial assistance to staff relocating to Glasgow in order to take up a position with the School. For details of our current Relocation Policy please click here.
