UCSF's Temporary Employment Program recruits and hires temporary employees for a variety of immediate clerical and technical support services.


UCSF's Temporary Employment Program (TEP) recruits and hires temporary employees for a variety of immediate clerical and technical support services in UCSF departments and various off-campus locations. Temporary employment also is a viable recruitment source of candidates for casual and career vacancies. UCSF departments hire temporary employees to work on special projects, fill in for regular employees who are on vacation or sick leave, or to temporarily fill a vacant position during recruitment. Temporary employees frequently become successful candidates for career and limited appointment positions.
