Staffing Options- Campus Only

Campus-Only Recruitment is a competitive process that normally utilizes a search committee to screen, interview and identify an internal candidate for hire. Advertising and outreach are limited to the UC Santa Cruz community.

Only current UC Santa Cruz employees (student, staff or academic) with an active appointment in the payroll system and individuals with preferential rehire or special reassignment rights are eligible for consideration.

A Certified Hiring Manager (CHM) interacts directly with the Recruitment Management System (RMS) to initiate recruitment requests, status applications and begin the job offer process. A Hiring Manager (HM) works through their Talent Acquisition Consultant (TAC) to accomplish these activities.



  • Allows all campus employees access to a promotional opportunity
  • Provides an opportunity to hire most qualified internal applicant
  • Reduces perceptions of inequity or unfairness that can result from reorganizations or use of Non-Recruitment process
  • Limits pool of applicants to UC Santa Cruz employees – this impacts the diversity of the pool of applicants
  • Does not allow qualified external applicants to apply
