Internal Position Change

This policy does not apply to faculty. Information about promotions and transfers applicable to faculty may be found in the Faculty Handbook. 

Individuals may apply for an open internal position after successfully completing their introductory period. If the employee has been in their current position for less than one year, then the employee must obtain supervisory approval to apply for an internal position. The employee must notify their immediate supervisor if selected as a finalist in the selection process.

Job opportunities are posted online at rhodes.edu/employment. Employees who find a position of interest for which they are qualified should submit an internal application through the Workday career portal. All internal job applications must be approved to move forward by the Chief Human Resources Officer. 

When an employee is officially notified of selection for the new position, at least two (2) weeks’ notice must be given to the present department, unless waived by the employee′s current supervisor. In the event a promotional assignment is found unsuitable by either the employee or the College, consideration will be given to allow the promoted employee to return to the former position if available. If not available, and the employee has been counseled and given sufficient time to correct any existing deficiencies, the employee may be subject to termination.

No offer of employment can be made by a hiring manager of one department of the College to an employee of another department of the College without approval of the respective Vice President/Dean.
Any job changes will be effective at the beginning of a new pay period.
