Filling Staff and Management Vacancies

Departments wishing to fill vacant or newly created positions should consult with Human Resources to determine how to meet their staffing needs. Vacancies may be filled by initiating a recruitment, making a temporary appointment (emergency hire), or reassigning an incumbent employee. Human Resources will advise the Hiring Authority of the options available and facilitate the process selected. Recruitments and reassignments require approval by the Vice President with administrative authority over the vacancy. Temporary (emergency hire) appointments are made and approved at the department level.
