Human Resources launches a new temporary hiring process

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

As of November 1st, the hiring process for temporary staff has changed. In the spring of 2016, Human Resources received approval to conduct a pilot within the Student Services portfolio to establish a hiring process for temporary staff that aligned with our hiring of regularized staff.

The new process provides several benefits to managers who hire temporary staff (appointments greater than three months); including the elimination of paper-based approvals, assistance with job descriptions and postings through our talent acquisition system (iCIMS), screening questions to assist with shortlisting, and streamlined applicant review and filtering. This process is for staff positions only and does not include post docs, research associates, teaching assistants or co-ops. Any temporary student employment will now be processed using the Temporary Student Appointment form.

During October, HR led three training sessions for hiring managers to review the new process. There will be another training session on November 24th, please register if you’re interested. Instructions, forms and additional information will be posted on the Hiring page of the HR website. If you have any questions regarding the new process, please contact your HR Partner.
