Recruitment Information for Supervisors
The University of West Florida is committed to providing equal opportunity and nondiscrimination towards applicants and employees as it pertains to race, color, religion, age, disability, gender, marital status, national origin, sexual orientation and veteran status, consistent with State and Federal law. University departments shall welcome and encourage applications from a diverse population and hire the most suitable individual for a position based upon position requirements, preferred qualifications, and needs of the department.
Human Resources policy HR-20.02 details hiring principles, vacant positions, appointment types, advertising position vacancies, application, selection, and appointment.
A vacancy exists when an incumbent terminates an established position or when a new position is created. A current job description must be on file in Human Resources for Work Force positions before a vacancy can be advertised. All vacancies must be advertised for a minimum of ten business days on the online career site unless an exception or exemption exists. This site is the official means for advertising vacancies and is updated on a daily basis.
UWF Diversity Advertisement Initiative: The University of West Florida is a diverse university and is committed to recruiting diverse applicants. All University Work Force position vacancies at the Academic Advisor level or higher and all Faculty position vacancies (except Visiting Positions, Adjuncts, Instructors, and Lecturers) must be advertised in a least one external publication. This publication must be targeted to recruitment of gender and racial/ethnic minority candidates. Advertising Resources contains a listing of diverse publications.
The Human Resources Department in collaboration with the Office of Equity and Diversity have partnered with Insight into Diversity and LatPro, Inc. These publications scrape the careers site daily and post jobs to the following job boards for the duration they are posted on the careers site:
- Insight Into Diversity
- Diversity Jobs
- Veteran Jobs
- Latino Jobs
- Disability Jobs
- We Hire Women
- All Hispanic Jobs
- Asian Hires
- African American Hires
- All Bilingual Jobs
- All LGBT Jobs
Please refer to HR-20.02 for all the information that must be included in the advertisement.
Once you have created your advertisement, attach the document in the job posting in PageUp for review/approval. UWF uses Graystone for placing advertisements in the department selected publications. Advertisements must be approved by Human Resources prior to sending to Graystone. Departments will receive a quote from Graystone that requires approval before they will post. Human Resources does not pay for advertisements; therefore, you will need to be ready to pay with a PCard for your department.
