Conducting an effective and efficient competitive recruitment process for open staff positions helps meet the University’s goal of attracting a highly-qualified and diverse workforce to achieve our mission.

This Recruit and Hire Guide can be used for all open staff positions from service and support positions to management and executive positions. 


The hiring manager is the accountable stakeholder who defines the job and requests the position to be filled. The position to be filled generally reports to the hiring manager. The hiring manager is the person who owns the hiring and onboarding process.  

For all recruitment and hiring, the hiring manager should work with the HR office to ensure that the appropriate procedures are followed and the necessary documentation is completed and approved.
