Assign a Hiring Manager

Hiring Managers play a crucial role in any hiring process. That's why assigning a "Hiring Manager" in JazzHR is such an important part of creating a job.

Users in this role receive additional privileges, so it's important to only assign this role to the appropriate team members. Be sure to select a team leader or key decision maker.

This article covers:

How to Assign a Hiring Manager

Assign each job in JazzHR a Hiring Manager. Here's how:

  • Click Jobs.
  • Click the job for which you want to assign a Hiring Manager.
  • Click Edit Job.
  • Click the Team tab.
  • Click the drop-down caret next to the name of the preferred team member.
  • Select Make Hiring Manager from the drop-down.

Note that this person will need to have an active and verified JazzHR account. They will also need to be in either an Administrator or User Recruiting Role. Also, you can only assign one Hiring Manager per job.

JazzHR users in the Hiring Managers role receive additional notifications in order to stay in the loop on all candidate activity. Hiring Managers are notified, for example, when a candidate completes a questionnaire or when someone completes an Interview Guide

Note: Hiring Managers also receive notifications about job rejections. If your job does not meet Indeed's quality guidelines, an email with instructions is sent to the Hiring Manager on the job.

Purple stars next to jobs on the Dashboard indicate that you are the Hiring Manager on those positions.


Sensitive Data Privileges

Hiring Managers also have access to sensitive data. This means that the user you assign to be Hiring Manager will have access to salary information and internal notes. He/she will also be able to add EEO questions to job applications.

Note, though that if you select a User (rather than an Administrator) as Hiring Manager, he/she will only be able to see sensitive data for jobs on which they are the Hiring Manager. You may also check the Administrative Privilege override to allow them to see sensitive data for all jobs and candidates they have visibility into.

Additionally, the Hiring Manager has increased visibility into comments on the discussion tab regarding candidates, interview feedback completed by others, and evaluations completed by other users on the hiring team.
