Hiring Process

Recruiting a non-classified employee is the responsibility of the department hiring for the appointment. Job Profiles and posting through the university's career page is not required. However, optional posting through the careers page is available should you require assistance with sourcing candidates for these positions.

Once you have selected a successful candidate for your non-classified position an offer should be presented to the candidate. The terms and conditions of the appointment should be clearly outlined, including duties, compensation and duration of the contract. Offers can only be accepted once it has been determined that the candidate is legally entitled to work in Canada under the terms of the offer.

Non-Classified employees are hired through the online Template Based Hire (TBH) form. Use the appropriate guide below to hire or rehire.

Once the person and job record have been created in the Human Resources PeopleSoft system the new employee’s reporting manager will receive a confirmation email. The email will include appointment details and a link to the Onboarding page.

The manager's checklist should be used to help you ensure that your new employee is given an IT account, a university email address and other system access including additional PeopleSoft roles in both Finance and HR.
