Temporary Staffing Options

Search Via PeopleAdmin

As with regular, intermittent and other position types, all OHIO departments also have the ability to conduct searches for temporary positions (less than 120 days) and term positions (120 days – 3 years) through our applicant tracking system, PeopleAdmin. Doing so follows the same process as other searches including having a position description vetted by Compensation, posting a search through PeopleAdmin, reviewing and screening applicants, and submitting a hiring proposal.

For more information, contact your departmental hiring manager or your HR liaison. 

Ideal when…you have a unique need and would like full control over the search and hiring processes.

Requesting Systems Access for Temporary Staff

Contingent workers are eligible for Guest Access through OIT, including an OHIO email address; additional information is available via the OIT Guest Access Options website.

Contingent workers who specifically need access to JET and/or the Oracle EBIZ Suite must have an assignment record created by University Human Resources in order to request systems access through OIT. To submit the record and access request, please complete the online request form. Please note: if you are requesting a contingent worker assignment record, OIT will automatically provision an OHIO ID and email as is done for all standard employees. If you are requesting a contingent assignment record for someone who already has guest access through OIT, that guest user information must be provided in the request form.
