Role permissions breakdown

Follow

What a user can see and do in their Lever environment is dictated by their role. In turn, roles are provisioned with permissions corresponding to the objects and workflows in each part of the platform. Lever has five preconfigured roles: Super Admin, Admin, Team Member, Limited Team Member, and Interviewer. The permissions for these roles cannot be edited.

When a user is added to Lever, their account is configured with the role that will dictate what they can view and the actions they can take. To learn more about this workflow, refer to our help article on user management.

The table in this article lists all configurable permissions in Lever, grouped by platform area, as well as the permission sets for each of the five preconfigured roles. Note that any of the listed permissions can be provisioned for a custom role. To learn more, refer to our help article on configuring custom role permissions.


Roles by function

While the roles given to users in your Lever environment can vary based on your organization's needs, the five preconfigured roles are typically granted along the following function-specific categories:

Role Function
Super Admin HR Director, VP of People
Admin Lead Recruiter, Head of Recruiting, Recruiters
Team Member Recruiters, Recruiting Coordinators, Schedulers, Sourcers
Limited Team Member Hiring Managers
Interviewer The rest of your organization
