Primary Information

    Tufts University allows temporary workers to be hired in one of two ways: either through its Managed Service Provider called Tufts Temps (the best method if searching for a candidate) or by hiring directly (which is the best process if you have already identified a candidate).  Read more about both processes.

    Please note that all temporary workers and non-Tufts student workers must undergo a background check. Upon submission of the online form, the information will be reviewed by Tufts Human Resource to evaluate whether and what level of background needed for the position, duties, and work location. Temporary Workers may not start to work until background check is completed. Please allow 7-20 business days (depending on the level of background check needed) for processing the background check and entering the hire into the system. Please allow additional time for the temporary worker to complete the onboarding requirements, including submission of the I-9.

    Before on-campus temps can begin, they must meet the COVID protocol and testing standards: Testing at Tufts.
