The first 11 months of any new job can be challenging and it is critical that the new employee gains a clear understanding of and expectations around the job role during this time. The purpose of the probationary period is to provide the University of Limerick with an opportunity to establish the employee’s suitability for the role and to provide the new employee with an opportunity to fully discuss and understand the role and to receive feedback on their performance.

For more details, read the full Probation Policy on the Policy Hub. Also refer to the Probation Assessment Form and Probation- Guidelines for Managing Probation available on the HR A-Z.
