Ready to assist with UVA’s transition to Workday

Super Temps


Our dynamic, one-of-a-kind, Super Temps program connects our partners with incredibly talented temporary employees who have proven success in a senior-level administrative or project management role and a willingness to commit to long-term temporary work. The program helps fill critical gaps of employment across UVA by equipping these temporary employees with the necessary training to step in to critical roles and make immediate impact.

In 2019 UVA will transition to Workday, and we are preparing to recruit and train a new group of Super Temps ready to assist with this change. While we're readying our Super Temps, you can get to know our past cohorts and read more about our prestigious CUPA Award.
