Add people to hiring team

Users who can post jobs can add members to a job's hiring team when creating the job. Users with full access to a job (or a Coordinator role) can add and remove members from the hiring team afterwards on the job's profile.

New job

Hiring is a team effort! When you create a job, you can add people to the hiring team on the Hiring Team step of the Job Positing Wizard and assign them a hiring team role, which will determine their level of access to the job and its candidates, and the actions they can take.

Hiring team roles

SmartRecruiters has five default roles, which determine (and limit) the candidate information that each team member can see, and the actions that each member can take during the hiring process.

Type Access and Permissions
Executive Executive users have full access to the job and candidates who apply to the job, and can perform all job and candidate actions without restriction. However, Basic or Employee users who are assigned Executive roles can't edit the job, purchase assessments, or spend in the store.
Hiring Manager Hiring Managers also have full access to the job and candidates who apply to the job, and can perform all job and candidate actions without restriction. Basic or Employee users who are assigned Hiring Manager roles can't edit the job, purchase assessments, or spend in the store.
Recruiter Recruiters also have full access to the job and candidates who apply to the job, and can perform all job and candidate actions without restriction. Basic or Employee users who are assigned Recruiter roles can't edit the job, purchase assessments, or spend in the store.
Coordinator Coordinators have full access to the jobs they've been assigned to, but have limited access to candidates who apply to that job. They can't advance candidates through the hiring process, extend offers, or reject.
Interviewer An Interviewer has the most limited level of access. They're just able to view candidates' profiles and resumes, and rate and compare candidates.

For additional flexibility, create a Custom Hiring Role with a custom name.

By default, when someone creates a job, SmartRecruiters will add them to the hiring team with a Hiring Manager role.

  • Add other members by searching for them by name or email, then select a hiring role.
  • You can add more members and change roles after you create the job.

Existing job

If you have full access to the job, or are a Standard/Basic user with a Coordinator role, you can add and remove people from the hiring team and change their hiring team role on that job from the Hiring Process tab on the job's profile.

To add or remove people from a job's hiring team:

  1.  Find the job in the Jobs list and click on its title (or somewhere else within the container).
  2. On the job's profile, click the Hiring Process tab.
  3. In the Hiring Team section, search for a new member by name.
  4. Click their name and assign them a hiring role from the list.
  5. Click Add to hiring team to finish. 

To remove a team member, just click the x in the upper right corner of their tile.

To change the hiring role for a team member, choose at new one from the dropdown list.
