Create Job Requisition

Lesson for full-time recruitment process

If required – follow the steps outlined below to create a job requisition.


With the implementation of the Human Resource Management System, there are some actions that will require support from HR to complete. These actions pertain to recruitment – Full-Time and Non Full-Time (NFT Contracts). You are required to add the Talent Acquisition Advisor to your requisitions in order for HR to support you in completing your recruitment activities. Below you will find the listing for your reference as well as a screenshot of where on the requisition these additions need to be made.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the HR Support Centre.

  • Prior to creating a requisition, managers must consult with their Dean or Director, Vice-President and HR Business Partner to discuss if any changes need to be made to the vacant position or job description. Details of these conversations must be added to the ‘Additional Information’ section when the requisition is created. In the case of overlapping incumbents in a position, managers must complete an ‘Overlapping Incumbent Form’ and attach it to the job requisition.  
  • There must be an existing requisition template in HRMS in order to create a requisition. If no requisition template exists, managers must contact their Talent Acquisition Advisor.
