Professional Staff Temporary Appointment
Requisition Approval


Once your requisition has been entered into UWHIRES, it then needs approval from the appropriate people in your department and Human Resources. The approval process begins in UWHIRES.

Compensation's Role

The Compensation Office will be added to the requisition by your employment specialist. The Compensation Office will evaluate the position to ensure it meets the professional staff exemption criteria. Compensation will contact the listed hiring manager with any questions.


To get your requisition approved:

  1. Initiate the approval process by opening the requisition in UWHIRES and clicking "Edit Requisition."
  2. In the "Job Status" field, choose "Pending Approval" from the drop down menu.
  3. Click "Save."

The first person on your approver list is notified of the request for approval via email. Once the first approver has completed their approval, an email will be sent to the second approver. This will continue until all approvers have approved the requisition.

If you have already identified the individual who will perform the work proceed to Post Offer.

If you will need to recruit for this position then your employment specialist (ES) will be the final approver on the requisition. You will automatically receive an email letting you know if it has been approved and posted. The next step will be Review Resumes.

If you have questions about the status of your requisition, check your hiring manager workbench or call your employment specialist.
