Temporary Pool-Administrative Support


Azusa, CA
ID: TP100


APU is seeking a temporary pool of applicants who desire to engage in our thriving culture by cultivating community through professional interactions, demonstrating a posture of lifelong learning, and modeling Christ-like character. Working together, employees at APU commit to establishing a university atmosphere that is edifying to God and to one another.


This is a CONTINUOUS TEMPORARY POOL. Temporary assignments are filled on an as needed basis. As a position becomes available, you may be contacted by the hiring manager to schedule an interview.


Azusa Pacific University’s Temporary Pool provides temporary administrative, customer service, and technical support for the University. This pool is open to all applicants.


Working through the Temporary Pool can provide employees with opportunities to:

  • Work in a variety of administrative, operational, and academic departments.
  • Learn University policies and procedures.
  • Gain experience and exposure within the University, allowing the opportunity to explore and expand career options.
  • Accept or decline assignments based on their schedule and availability and the department’s needs.
  • Apply for regular full-time assignments, as those who are part of the Temporary Pool can simultaneously apply for regular posted positions. 


Temporary Pool employees who want to maintain flexibility can remain in the Temporary Pool accepting assignments on a one-by-one basis. Additionally, the Temporary Pool is a potential entry point to continuing employment at the University.
