It's not possible to make a field required only at a certain point/stage of the job requisition. The field once it is required, it is always required.

When it comes to make it required only for certain users, the answer is no, you can't select to whom these fields will be required and for whom they won't, but there are workarounds. If a recruiter shouldn't have a field made as required in the pre-approved state, the workaround would be to remove the recruiter's permission to edit this field. If they don't have permission to edit this field, the system understands that this field is not required for them, so they allow them to move forward without that field being filled. They are still able to see it, but the *, that indicates that the fields are required, won't be there. For the users that have permission to edit this field and this field is required, they won't be able to move forward unless this field is filled.
