Local Construction Hiring

Local Construction Hiring 

In 2011, UCSF voluntarily implemented a local hiring goal that mirrors the standards adopted by the Board of Supervisors of the City and County of San Francisco’s Local Ordinance.

To help UCSF accomplish such a robust local hiring effort, UCSF has partnered with CityBuild, the city of San Francisco’s pre-apprenticeship and employee network program, to help promote local hire for projects with contract value of $5 million and above. CityBuild helps identify opportunities to meet UCSF's voluntary local hiring goals, recruits local qualified construction trade workers and apprentices, maintains a work-readiness database, and refers workers to appropriate union locals.

EXCEL Program

The UC San Francisco Excellence through Community Engagement & Learning (EXCEL) Program is a clerical/administrative training program which aims to develop the potential workforce in UCSF’s surrounding communities and provide San Francisco residents with access to health-field related employment opportunities.

Since its inception in 1998, the program has graduated over 280 community residents with a large percentage of these graduates succeeding in obtaining career employment throughout UCSF. The program has now expanded to offer two cycles per year enrolling a total of approximately 40 interns.

The program is a work-based learning program that uses both classroom and on-the-job training to prepare participants for career path jobs in the healthcare sector.  After completing 10 weeks of computer, administrative, customer service, and medical terminology training at JVS, UCSF’s community-based training partner,  participants are placed in paid, four-month clerical/administrative internships within UCSF’s various departments, throughout both the campus and medical center.
