What is happening?
Human Resources has been working on a project to replace the current UCPeople/PeopleSoft recruitment module for continuing and long term fixed term staff recruitment with new a recruitment platform.
The new recruitment platform is named ‘UC Jobs’.
Note: University of Canterbury Temporary Vacancy System (UCTV) is not affected at this stage.
This project is in line with the UC Staff Recruitment Strategy and as part of an ongoing commitment to operational excellence and continuing process improvement.
What is changing?
The new staff recruitment platform will enable process and technology improvements across UC and hiring managers will have greater control to move their candidates through the recruitment process. The recruitment business case will now be entered and approved online.
For more details on what is changing refer to HR Intranet: What is Changing? – UC Staff Recruitment Platform (staff access only).
When is it happening?
The new staff recruitment platform will go live next Wednesday 20 November 2019.
What is happening with currently advertised roles?
Current roles that we are in the process of recruiting via the UCPeople/PeopleSoft Recruitment Module are closing on Tuesday 19 November at the latest.
The old UCPeople/PeopleSoft candidate portal will close at the end of business on Tuesday 19 November. Current roles and applicants who applied via UCPeople/PeopleSoft will still be processed in the old Recruitment system.
From the 20 November all new advertised roles will be posted via the new Recruitment Platform ‘UC Jobs’.
Human Resources will work with each hiring manager individually as new roles to be advertised arise.
Please contact your HR Advisor for further information or visit our HR intranet site: UC Staff Recruitment Platform (staff access only).

Can you work with this UC student?
“I’m looking for someone with a full license who lives in or near Rangiora. I use a wheelchair and am looking for someone to drive my automatic car to go into the University of Canterbury on Thursday and/or Friday.
“I’m starting postgraduate study at the University of Canterbury and I require someone (ideally who attends UC and is postgraduate or teaching staff or someone who works in Riccarton) to drive me into campus and back home, each week on a Thursday and/or Friday.
“I use a powered wheelchair and have a modern fully automatic modified car with automatic chair locking system. We would car pool in together and then carpool back to Rangiora after being at Uni. We would do our separate university study or work throughout the day.
“Petrol costs are covered and you would be paid 2 1\2 hours for the assistance I require to travel in my car and the travel time. It would be great to share company and a few laughs while attending university.
