Section: Employment Engagement Practices
Responsible Office: Human Resources
Effective Date: 9/3/2015
It is the University’s policy to encourage and promote the professional growth of each employee. Recognizing that our employees are our greatest asset, we take an interest in giving them the first chance to apply for open positions at the University. Preference will be given based on ability, qualifications, potential to do the job and current job performance.
All vacant administrative and staff positions generally will be posted for a period of five (5) working days before the position is filled. If you see a job listed that interests you, apply directly as indicated on the posting.
Open positions are updated regularly and can also be viewed by visiting the Iona University career page.
Current staff and administrators of Iona University generally must be in their current position for at least one (1) year and have a good performance record in order to apply for other available positions at the University.
The University encourages employees to seek positions that will advance their careers, and in the spirit of transparency, recommends that the internal candidate notify the current supervisor after the initial conversation (with the hiring department if there is mutual interest in pursuing that employee’s candidacy.) The University will not tolerate retaliation of any sort and encourages employees to communicate openly and appropriately in these circumstances.
