Requisition Approval

Once your requisition has been entered into UWHIRES, it needs departmental and Human Resources approval.

To get your requisition approved:

  1. Initiate the approval process by opening your 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 will receive email notification that the requisition is ready for review. When the first approver approves the requisition, an email message is sent to the next approver, and so on until all approvers have approved the requisition.

Your employment specialist is the final approver on all requisitions and will forward the requisition to the Compensation Office when required.

Once the employment specialist approves the requisition, the requisition will switch to the "Open and Approved" status. Your employment specialist then posts the position to the UW employment website, where applicants can apply for the position. You will automatically receive an email letting you know if it has been approved and posted.

If there are additional places where your position will be advertised, your employment specialist will post there, as well.

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