- Staff positions: Collective Agreement requirements (where applicable)
- Faculty positions: Faculty Recruitment Guidelines
- Your advertising budget
Developing Recruitment Advertisements
Development of faculty and staff recruitment advertisements is available on request. We can assist you in our efforts, including connecting you with TMP Worldwide, UBC’s prequalified recruitment advertising agency.
If you are interested or have questions, please contact Catherine Pitman, Workplace Engagement Strategist. We also encourage you to send us examples of your ads so that they may be shared with others in the UBC community responsible for faculty and staff recruitment.
Note: All recruitment ads need to include University Diversity Statement:
Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. We encourage applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the B.C. Human Rights Code, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Metis, Inuit, or Indigenous person.
