Hiring Support Staff

OVC Position Review and Approval Process

All open non-temporary Support Staff positions (either full or part time) must undergo a position review prior to conducting a search.

Job Description

The initial step in the hiring process starts with creating or updating a job description. A Job Description Template needs to be completed and submitted to OVC HR for review.

Job Classification

When a new job description is developed, the description is reviewed to determine the appropriate classification based on the required knowledge, skills and responsibilities of the position. This review ensures the position will be categorized with similar positions, salary ranges and with the appropriate title.

Posting a position

Job descriptions/postings should be forwarded to OVC HR for posting. Additional advertising is available at the expense of the Office conducting the search.

Reference checking

We encourage checking references using our online reference checking system, SkillSurvey. Using SkillSurvey improves the efficiency of the reference process (1.2 turnaround!) and standardizes the process, reducing bias. All references are asked to complete the same job-specific survey designed to help the references rate the candidate on the specific behaviors that are relevant to a job. Feedback remains confidential and will be included in a report that averages all of the references’ ratings. Contact Kristin McCoy to initiate the reference process with your finalist.

Making an offer

All offers of employment are made by OVC HR. Contact Kristin McCoy, OVC Director of Human Resources, with the candidate’s resume, copy of reference checking notes, preferred start date and work schedule.
