Pooled Hiring

Last Updated 03/23/2024

Refers to the practice of centralized coordination of federal government-wide hiring. Pooled hiring works when large numbers of applicants for an employment position apply but only 1 or 2 are selected, leaving qualified applicants still available in the pool. Agencies can leverage the hiring pool as the default course of business, working together within an agency and across Departments on shared hiring actions. Hiring managers have incentive to work collaboratively with their Human Resources (HR) partners, resulting in more strategic and innovative recruiting and efficient use of appropriate hiring authorities, assessments, and technologies available to reach top candidates. Pooled hiring at scale can maximize efficiency and enable agencies to quickly hire applicants who are highly qualified, saving time and resources and enhancing the applicant experience via centralized coordination of hiring.
