Hiring Process

ESC Hiring Process (for employers)

Steps to Hire New Employees
 
Step 1: Create ESCHires Account
The ESC uses an online hiring portal called ESCHires to initiate employment requests from client school districts and agencies . To access ESCHires, a school district or agency must first complete an ESCHires Account Request Form. When completing the form, please select ESCHires as the Account Type.

Permission Levels (Note: Both should be selected for full access)

  • Hiring Manager | Will see their own forms submitted only
  • Administrator | Will be able to see all forms submitted, even those submitted by others (view only access

Once received and reviewed, the ESC will email access credentials to the district or agency hiring managers and administrators as designated on the request form.
 
New agency or school district human resources personnel requesting access to ESCHires may also need access to the ESC-Agency/District HR Group Folders. If access is needed, please complete an additional ESC IT Account Request Form. Under Account Type select Office 365 Guest.
 
Once received and reviewed, the ESC will email access credentials to the Account Holder designated on the request form. The ESC-Agency/District Group HR Folders grants human resources personnel access to the central hub in which the ESC and the agency's or school district's annual salaries, annual evaluations, host reports, and additional human resources information is collected.

Step 5: Confirmation Notice
When the above steps have been completed and reviewed by ESC human resources staff, the hiring school district or agency will receive an email notice that the employee is cleared to begin working.
