Once you have selected a qualified final candidate, you will need to establish a proposed salary request and obtain approval for the salary offer from your Employment Specialist (ES). When your ES reviews the offer, he or she will verify that the desired amount is within the recruiting range and ensure that current classified staff are being offered the required salary step.
If your candidate will have to make a domiciliary move (relocate and establish a new residence), determine whether it may be appropriate to include a "lump sum relocation incentive payment" and/or to pay moving expenses as part of your offer of employment. Review the following resources for information about these options.
Follow these steps to request offer approval:
Once the salary has been approved, then you can make the offer to the candidate. Make the offer contingent upon a successful background check. Contact your ES if salary negotiation is needed.
Notify HR of offer acceptance and start date.
*Note — for UW Medical Center and Harborview, and for positions that are designated as security/safety sensitive, offers are contingent upon a successful background check.
