Temporary Help Pool

It's Purpose

The University of Tennessee Health Science Center Office of Human Resources manages the Temporary Help Pool, which provides departments with qualified, experienced temporary staff to bridge short-term staffing needs. It is our goal to find competent temporary employees for departments at UTHSC while striving to be the best source for internal help.

We recognize that our contingent workforce is an essential part of the university's need to optimize performance, internally build talent capability, increase productivity, and manage workforce flexibility. So, we will employ every effort to ensure that we find the right personality fit and talent level for each temporary assignment.

Our office provides temporary staff to fill seasonal positions, vacation periods, position vacancies due to leaves of absence, and other types of vacancies.

What HR Does

We meet with university department hiring managers to discuss their temporary staffing requirements and identify qualified candidates whose skills are suited to the department's needs.

Our services include:

  • external recruitment and advertisement
  • pre-screening resumes and applications
  • initial in-person screenings
  • setting up interviews
  • conducting reference checks
  • licensure and education verification
  • administering criminal background checks
