The UAB Manager's Recruitment Toolbox is designed to serve as a resource for hiring managers to assist with the steps involved in recruiting for and filling positions at UAB.

How to Request a New Employee (Full-Time or Part-Time)

To request a new employee for full-time or part-time work or someone to backfill a departing employee, UAB has an established process that should be followed. The process begins with the PAR/CRF form, which provides UAB Compensation and UAB Recruitment Services with the essential information and approvals from your department to help us facilitate your search.


How To Request A Temporary Employee

When it comes to providing qualified temporary staff, UAB Recruitment Services—through its Temporary Services unit--can do much more than fill your immediate need, we can save you time and money.  To request a temporary resource, please complete a Temporary Employee PAR/CRF form:

Instructions on how to use the PAR/CRF form can be found here.

Cost Savings - How Temporary Services Benefits You

Why use UAB Temporary Services for your needs? The use of outside temporary employment agencies is discouraged, as UAB may be held accountable for the conduct of outside agencies, and private agencies are much more expensive to utilize. UAB Temporary Services charges a much lower rate than that of outside agencies. Should you decide to hire a Temporary Services employee for a full-time position, there is no conversion fee, which outside firms would normally charge. All applicants undergo a comprehensive initial screening, which includes an extensive criminal history investigation, verification of education and previous work history, and a review of motor vehicle records where necessary.

Departments that are assigned temporary employees are charged the employee’s base salary plus a percentage to cover administrative costs. The department’s budget is automatically billed. No requisitions for payment are required.

For more detailed information regarding the use of Temporary Services, please contact the UAB Temporary Service Office within UAB Recruitment Services at 934-4030.

OIG Checks

For all positions at UAB, an OIG background check is required. For 01/02/03/04 status hires, UAB Recruitment Services will run this check. To receive the request form for this search, please contact us at for more information.
