Confidential requisitions in Lever supports the ability for companies to handle hiring for sensitive roles, such as executives and planned backfills of existing employees. Robust and precise access controls ensure that visibility into these requisitions, job postings, and candidates tied to them, can be restricted to a small subset of involved stakeholders. Readers of this article will learn about:
- Who can create, edit, and view confidential requisitions
- Creating confidential requisitions
- Making existing requisitions confidential
Before proceeding, note that the process of setting up confidential requisitions holds some differences to setting up regular requisitions. To learn more, check out our help article on creating and managing requisitions.

- Click the blue + Create requisition button in the upper right hand corner.
- Fill in the requisition details.
- Click the "Hiring for a confidential job posting?" link.
||A requisition in and of itself cannot be made "confidential" -- it's the act of linking a requisition to a confidential posting that renders the requisition confidential. "Hiring for a confidential job posting?" link will inform you that this is required, and who can access once the confidential posting is linked.|
- Click the Ok, close button.
To link the requisition to a job posting, click + Add posting in the top right corner.
- From the dropdown list of job postings, click the confidential posting to which you wish to link the requisition.
- Note that confidential job postings are indicated with a green lock icon.
||Only a 1:1 confidential posting to requisition relationship is permitted. Help text will remind the user should they attempt to link additional postings to the requisition.|
To ensure the security of the confidential posting and requisition, approval workflows are bypassed.
- Click Next to continue.
Once all steps are completed, you’ll will reach the final screen with confirmation message that the requisition is open.
- Click Done tocomplete the requisition workflow.

Linking from a confidential posting
From the confidential posting, click + Add requisition and select a requisition. Per the 1:1 relationship requirement, any requisition that is already linked to a job posting will not be available to select.
Linking from a requisition
From the existing requisition, click + Add posting and select a job posting. Any job posting that is already linked to a job posting will not be available, and you will see help text indicating it is already linked to another requisition.
