2 2012-2013 Resident Assistant Recruitment and Selection Process (Presentation Pt 3)

3   Duties  RAs participate in after hours phone duty rotation. Differences based on staff size  Office Hours and other duties assigned throughout the year  RAs in Flats conduct Flat Visits  RAs learn residents in your area on the 1:40 basis  Events  Main role is to plan and facilitate house/site events  However, the event model is different between PG & UG sites  Events focus on many different areas  Break Coverage  PG Sites are 12 month leases and require their RAs to be there all year.  RA must discuss with line manager when leaving for breaks so that appropriate coverage is arranged  RA must discuss with line manager when away from site (both during break and especially if it is during term time) Site Differences

4   a 75% reduction for accommodation appropriate to the assigned accommodation  Shared flat in the Flat sites with the other RAs at that site  In Pollock Halls the 75% reduction includes the cost of catering Position Remuneration

5   Catered Accommodation  Approximately 2,200 residents  8 different houses  Home to Accommodation Services & Residence Life  Two buildings house mixed UG and PG students Pollock Halls

7 PG Sites Self-Catered Approximately 1,000 residents Multiple RA sites –Blackwood Crescent –Ratcliffe Terrace –West Mains Road –Asham Court –Mylnes Ct –Richmond Place/Roxburgh –Morgan Court –Holland Annexe

8   Staff are hired for the Team and not for a Site  We do ask preferences but cannot guarantee that successful candidates will be offered their first choice  If you are offered a position and decline, there will not be another offer  If you are surprised by a site that hires you, the hiring supervisors may have seen a strength in you that you did not realise  You are being considered by people from sites that you may not have met with during your interview Hiring Philosophy

9   It is not mandatory for you to schedule a “personal meeting” with a current Warden/RA/Accommodation Manager in a specific site  If you are not familiar with a site it may be advisable for you to visit it to see the student population but this is not mandatory  The staff selection process is a collaborative process that includes staff members of every site  What do we look for in a candidate?  We staff each house/flat first with the returning staff  We then look for people who will complement the existing staff and meet the needs of the residents in the area  Not everyone needs to be an energetic, extroverted “people person” Hiring Philosophy Continued
