Temporary Services

collage temp careers2UAB Temporary Services is a UAB Recruitment Services department offering qualified temporary staff to organizations within the UAB campus, including UAB Hospital, UAB Health Services Foundation, Viva and Southern Research Institute. We provide placement for temporary employee candidates in a timely manner while providing a cost-effective and efficient way to meet department staffing needs.

Temporary opportunities or engagements are often limited to a specific time-limited duration. Our temporary staff can help managers address situations such as work volume increases, unscheduled absences, special events/conferences, project augmentation, and employee leaves or absences and assist candidates who are seeking temporary employment opportunities. If you are interested in applying for temporary employment, please apply here. 

UAB Temporary Services provides assistance to the UAB campus and UAB Medicine. Please note that beginning July 1, 2013, UAB Medicine will no longer hire individuals who use nicotine products. This includes UAB Temporary Services employees assigned to those departments. Therefore, all applicants who are offered and accept a position with UAB Temporary Services that will be assigned to engagements within UAB Medicine will be tested for nicotine during a regular pre-employment drug screen. Applicants who have cotinine levels above the threshold will have their employment offer rescinded. Those who test positive are welcomed to re-apply after 60 days. 

***This new policy does not apply to those Temporary Services employees on assignment within the UAB campus.

UAB Temp Staffing also can facilitate temporary to permanent roles, which provide temporary employees with an opportunity to gain work experience, while managers determine if longer term employment may be the next step. It is a mutually beneficial situation for all involved.  UAB temporary employees have the opportunity to learn more about UAB and gain additional experience while working on various engagements in a temporary capacity.

  • Accounting & Finance Services
