The UCI is currently offering a new job application portal for its jobseekers, but some are being left without a job application at all.
The UCIs website is currently offline due to a “security incident”.
The UCI said on its official website that the issue affected applications submitted by users on Tuesday and Thursday.
The website went offline for maintenance on Thursday, with no immediate explanation given.
The UCIs new Job Applications Portal, launched on Wednesday, allows jobseekers to apply online for jobs in the UCI’s main fields of sport, medicine, technology and technology support, the UCi said.UCI president Gregor Robertson told journalists that the UCIs portal was “a vital tool for people seeking to find work” in the sport, medical and technology fields.
He said the UCIS portal was being “reliably” updated as it received new data, which was expected to be completed by the end of this week.
Robertson said the site was “fully functional and has been working well since its launch”.
UCI chief executive Gilles Pinto said the portal “should allow people to apply to jobs at the UC I, UCI Medicine and the UCUC campus, where they can use a credit card, register online and receive an email when they submit their application.”
Robertson told reporters that the portal would allow applicants to make an application by “direct messaging UCI staff and applying directly through UCI website”.
“We know that a lot of applicants are looking for help in some way,” Robertson said.
“It’s a very important tool.”
Robertsons comments came as thousands of people were turned away at the University of Virginia on Thursday because they did not have the UCIB card they were required to bring.UCIB is the first step for those looking to apply at the university to get a job, but the UC has said applicants must apply for their jobs through the UC’s website.
Robertsons spokesperson said UCIB applicants can use their UCIB credit card and register online with the UC website.
“We’ve been working closely with the University to make sure that as soon as possible we’re able to restore the UCIA portal to its normal operation,” he said.
The website has also been shut down in the wake of a security incident, according to the UC.
The job applications portal has been available for several months now.
UCI spokesman Gilles Poinar said the website was being maintained by UCI employees, and “as soon as the security incident is resolved we will be back online.”
