Positions at UNC CHarlotte
There are two categories of permanent positions at UNC Charlotte: SHRA and EHRA. Both groups have some differences in terms of policies, leave allowances and benefits.
The need for a non-student temporary employee may be necessary when extra help is needed due to:
- Extended medical leaves
- Peak production levels
- Transitional period
- Increased workload demands
Part-time non-student temporary employees are ineligible to receive benefits (leave, health coverage, State service credit, etc.). They are, however, covered by Worker's Compensation provisions. Full-time non-student temporary employees that average 30 hours a week or more are eligible for the State Health Plan’s High Deductible Health Plan.
UNC Charlotte Application Process
The University offers a variety of employment opportunities for faculty, professional, staff and temporary positions (both non-student and student). As an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer, we encourage women, minorities, veterans and individuals with disabilities to apply.
Each vacancy listing includes minimum eligibility requirements, essential job functions, preferred qualifications, salary range (if applicable) and closing date.
Review the following steps for SHRA, EHRA non-faculty and non-student temporary employee positions. Information on faculty positions can be found at the Academic Personnel Procedures Handbook.
Apply through our online system before 11:59 p.m. EST on the position’s closing date.
SHRA applications are reviewed by a talent aquisition consultant in Human Resources. EHRA staff applications are reviewed by the hiring manager.
From this group, the interview pool is determined by an evaluation of a match to the job-related criteria, and the hiring official’s best estimation of a match to the respective responsibilities assigned to the vacant position. Please note, hiring officials are not required to interview every candidate referred to them for further consideration. Human Resources only asks that they conduct a minimum of three interviews for appropriate comparison purposes.
Once the applicant pool has been narrowed down to the final candidate, at least two reference checks must be completed.
- To assure a safe learning and working environment for our students, faculty and staff, the Human Resources Department conducts a criminal background check of any selected candidate who:
- Is not a current UNC Charlotte employee, and
- Has been identified as the preferred candidate for a full- or part-time, permanent, time-limited or temporary position (not including student positions).
- Note: A conviction does not mean that you are ineligible to be hired. The nature of any offense(s)—recency, severity, and relevance—will be evaluated in relation to the job for which you are applying. All job offers are conditional upon a review of the results of the criminal background report and the authorization of an appropriate University official who has determined that no adverse action will be taken based upon the information contained in the criminal background report.
Additionally, UNC Charlotte participates in the E-Verify Program as administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. As a result, the University provides the Social Security Administration (SSA) and, if necessary, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with information from each new employee’s Form I-9 to confirm US work authorization.
Note: HR does not mandate a set timetable for the completion of the interview and selection processes, but hiring decisions are typically made within four to six weeks following the posted closing date.
