Hiring Finance Professionals

In response to feedback from the University's finance community, the Office of Human Resources has introduced a new, streamlined approach to hiring finance professionals.

Finance Professional 1 and 2 positions from across the University are now combined into a single job posting, allowing candidates to apply just once for all open positions. This new process will not only create a better candidate experience, it has several advantages for hiring managers:

  • A dedicated, central recruiter will handle posting, advertising, recruiting, and collecting applications for finance professional openings, avoiding duplicated effort.
  • Hiring managers can take advantage of a shared pool of pre-qualified applicants.
  • Units will have a list of candidates within two days of their request.
  • This "continuous recruiting" process will help retain top finance candidates who might have been turned away once a particular job was filled.
  • Units will benefit from an OHR web page just for finance professionals, showcasing current openings.
