Hiring Temporary Employees

Process Update Effective June 1, 2020

Temporary employment program requests, reviews, and approvals were transitioned from the Classification & Compensation team to the Talent Acquisition team in December 2019. Requests to hire temporary employees are now reviewed by your recruiter "buddy," bringing us one step closer to having your "buddy" be the first point of contact for all of your recruiting and hiring needs. In transitioning this work, Talent Acquisition began a process review to find ways to streamline the temporary hire process. The results of that review have led to the following changes.

Beginning June 1, Talent Acquisition has launched an updated process for hiring temporary employees:

  • Requests to Hire (RTH) are now managed via an online form and will not require printing, signing, and returning forms to HR
  • Talent Acquisition will review all requests, notify units of approvals, and provide in time communication on next steps required.
  • PRFs can be submitted electronically via HR Operations new online submission process.

There are different types of temporary employment arrangements.  The type of temporary employee to be hired depends on work assignments. If you are unsure of the correct temporary employee type to apply to your department or unit's need, contact Talent Acquisition at talent@uoregon.edu or 6-5112 to determine the appropriate approach.

Temporary Employment Pool

If you would like to review candidates that have applied for temporary employment at the UO through the Temporary Employment Pool, please contact your assigned recruiter or Talent Acquisition at talent@uoregon.edu. This pool can be searched via candidate area of interest, as well as some common skills or competencies such as Banner usage. We are happy to work with you to see if candidates in this pool can fill your temporary needs.
