The Compensation Office assigns the job classification for classified positions. See also: Classified Job Titles and Class Specifications.
Some UW positions are considered security/safety sensitive. The successful candidate for such a position must have a criminal conviction history check conducted after a conditional offer of employment has been made and accepted. See the Criminal Background Check web page for details.
Prepare a position description that contains enough information to clearly define the job duties to be performed, including:
You will need budget information and the list of approvers/reviewers who must review/approve the UWHIRES requisition.
Enter your requisition in UWHIRES. Filling a job in UWHIRES starts with the creation of an electronic requisition that supplies all of the relevant information about the position, and is used to obtain the approvals necessary to proceed with recruitment.
Your requisition is now saved as a draft. You can continue to make changes to your requisition while in the draft mode.
