Greater Tennessee HERC

Started in 2014, the Greater Tennessee Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (Greater TN HERC) is a collaborative response of member institutions to the many challenges of academic recruitment and retention. One particular interest of the Greater TN HERC is finding effective ways to assist the spouses and partners of faculty and staff to secure area employment. As a non-profit consortium of higher education and affiliated employers, our sole aim is to help the most diverse and qualified candidates find the right jobs at our institutions.

A vital aspect of the Greater TN HERC is the web-based search engine that includes faculty and staff job listings at all member institutions. This search engine is free and available to anyone seeking employment in higher education. The central location of job postings and regional resources as well as the website's ability to accommodate dual-career searches distinguishes the Greater TN HERC from other employment websites.
