This is a lateral transfer opportunity.

Hiring managers will be viewing lateral transfer candidates on an on-going basis. Preference in appointment may be given to candidates who are eligible for lateral transfer.

Along with completing the Tompkins County electronic employment application, you must also provide a copy of: 1) your civil service roster record (shows dates of employment and civil service status), 2) the current job description, and 3) the exam announcement from the test which you received your permanent appointment. The examination that you took must be identical or substantially similar to a test that would be held for the Tompkins County position.
