Clients especially value their expertise and generosity in sharing knowledge and willin- gness to go the extra mile. Professional scribes will streamline your paperwork, schedule your timelines, ensure there are no process encumb- rances and provide documen- tation to satisfy your delegate of appropriate process. "Great scribes are a vastly underused resource" said man- aging director of RMC Catherine Andrews. "Our people understand the subtle, important issues of assessment that ensure that a Panel effectively abides by APS requirements. In turn, this en- sures good decision making, constructive feedback for candi- dates and a more satisfied workplace where all candidates are assured of proper process.'' Director of RMC Maree Upton said "because scribes have broad in-depth knowledge and extensive experience in public sector recruitment, they can provide valuable information on benchmark assessments across both professional, specialist streams and across APS/EL/SES levels.'' Some panels are highly experienced, some less so. A professional scribe will intuit the need to assist an inexperi- enced panel to understand their role and to achieve the best recruitment outcome. Most importantly, a scribe will help a panel to avoid problems which might have adverse consequen- ces such as delaying or negating assessments or becoming sub- ject to appeal. Catherine Andrews explains that, ''for public servants with demanding workloads and com- peting priorities, a professional expert Scribe provides both immediate and long term time and cost efficiencies." Scribe services commonly include convening selection committees, designing assess- ment processes, undertaking reference checks, documenting a selection panel's deliberations and recommendations and pro- viding developmental feedback to unsuccessful candidates.
