Create Job Requisition

Lesson for non 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 either 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.
