I’m after some advice on how to feedback to 2 internal candidates, who work on the same team, who were not shortlisted for a senior level vacancy which is now being re-advertised externally.
The issue is how to deliver feedback that the candidates were not successful when:
* They have both undertaken the role on a temporary promotion basis for development - butdid not demonstrate deliver in role inline with expected standards
* One candidate has also been unsuccessful at another internal vacancy and we are concerned that another knock back will result in her leaving.
Both candidates are highly competent at in their substantive posts and we don’t want to lose them
Any advice on how to best communicate the feedback (what to say and what not to say) would be really appreciated.
