UCCS is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce. Occasionally, a search waiver may be granted to expedite the hiring of a new faculty or university staff candidate. A search waiver is a request to "waive" the search process and to appoint an individual into an open position. Search waivers are the exception and may be requested in those situations where a person has a unique combination of education and experience necessary for an open position and there are extenuating circumstances that require the position to be filled immediately. Other examples where a search waiver might be requested might include hiring a candidate from a recently conducted search or when the position would represent a promotional opportunity for a qualified internal candidate. If the position that you are filling falls into this narrow category, you may seek a search waiver as follows:
Department notifies candidate to apply for the position and forwards the candidate the link to do so.
Department submits background check for the candidate.
Department edits JobsatCU with candidate information (recommended for hire).
Department emails Hrrecrut to close position in JobsatCU.
