Working Title: HR Professional
Position Type: Hourly Wage
Department: School of Medicine
Posting Date: 01-09-2017
The University of Virginia is undergoing a large restructuring of Human Resources. This initiative is called the Ufirst Project and more information about it can be found here: https://ufirst.virginia.edu/. The project will be ongoing for the next 2-3 years, requiring some HR staff to be redeployed to work on the project. As a result, there is a need for temporary help in Human Resources throughout the University to backfill some of these roles.
The School of Medicine is the largest School at the University with 31 centers and departments and over 2500 faculty and staff. It is part of a complex Health System. While this posting is assigned to the School of Medicine, it is possible that other areas at the University may partner on this search and hire in their organizations. Because the Ufirst Project will result in continuously changing needs, it is possible someone may be hired into one area and in the future be reassigned to another.
The HR Professional's duties will be largely related to their credentials and experience. Duties could include anything from catching up on scanning personnel files to providing frontline HR services to assigned departments. The incumbent may act with delegated authority on behalf of the institution after training. The work may touch compensation, classification, recruitment, orientation, organizational planning and employee relations.
The qualified candidate will have a bachelor's degree or equivalent of 8 years of directly related HR experience. While HR experience (above any used for the substitute) is strongly preferred, we will consider professionals from other disciplines with a Bachelor's degree.
Preference will be given to individuals with exposure to multiple HR specialties, HR certification, knowledge of employment law and policy, or previous experience in higher education.
This position is a temporary wage position limited to 1500 hours per year. While scheduled for 40 hours per week, we will consider qualified applicants who are interested in working less hours per week.
Required Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:
1. Excellent interpersonal and written and verbal communication skills.
2. Ability to work independently.
3. Discretionary skills and ability to handle matters in a highly confidential and sensitive manner with tact, respect, and courtesy.
4. Demonstrated ability to prioritize and perform multiple functions simultaneously.
5. Able to adapt to changing priorities as needed.
6. Exceptional attention to detail and accuracy.
7. Outstanding analytical and critical thinking ability as well as the ability to understand, dissect, create, and improve procedures.
