Hiring Staff @ Brown

The Office of Human Resources partners with hiring departments to recruit and hire a diverse and talented staff devoted to supporting Brown University’s academic mission. This partnership is designed to make certain hiring decisions are based on legal and fair selection processes in keeping with the tenants of Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity, and are compliant with University policy.

Hiring managers are encouraged to contact their HR Generalist as vacancies arise. The HR Generalist's role is to serve as a consultant in all stages of the hiring process, and s/he may be involved at varying degrees to include some or all of the following:

  • Advisement on staff recruitment and selection strategies
  • Screening or interviewing applicants
  • Drafting interview questions
  • Serving as a hiring committee member

There are additional resources on this site that will assist hiring managers. The Hiring Staff @ Brown Guide consolidates tools for recruiting regular payroll staff into one central resource. Managers who have a short term staffing need will find guidance on filling those positions here as well.
