How-to give access to the Recruiting Tab: There are no direct or actual permissions or switch settings for the Recruiting Module visibility. Once you have any of the following, you will have access to Recruiting:

a. Requisition Visibility - when a user is (1) an approver in the route map or (2) an assigned operator (i.e., Recruiter, Hiring Manager, etc.) or (3) part of the recruiting group assigned in the operator team (i.e., Recruiter team, Sourcer team, etc.) in the requisition.

b. Offer Approval Visibility - when a user is an approver of an offer approval.

c. Candidate Search Functionality - when a user has Standalone Search Permission under Recruiting Permissions (RBP) to access Candidate Search.  

How-to restrict access to the Recruiting Tab: Remove access to any or all of the following: 

a. Remove the search functionality permissions from Manage Permission Roles > [Role] > Permissions > Recruiting Permissions > Standalone Search Permission.
b. Reassign the offer approvals and the requisition operator roles via Admin Center > Reassign Job Requisitions or Admin Center > Reassign Offer Approvals.
c. Remove the user from the recruiting groups in Admin Center > Manage Recruiting Groups.

Caveat: If the user was added as an 'ad hoc' approver in the requisition's route map, it cannot be reassigned, therefore, it cannot be removed under the user's name. This means even if the user has access to even one requisition, the user would still have the Recruiting Tab visibility.
