Classified Employment Opportunities

Classified Service Employment Opportunities

Classified Service positions available at the university are within the purview of NYS Civil Service.  Some positions are within the competitive class service and some are non-competitive or labor class.

Competitive and non-competitive vacancies are posted as contractually required for the required number of days and, in general, university employees are considered first for vacancies.

If the university is unable to identify a qualified, internal candidate for a given position, we then accept applications from external applicants.

NY HELPS: Above titles with NY HELPS included in the name are part of the New York Hiring for Emergency Limited Placement Statewide Program (NY HELPS). 

  • For the duration of the NY HELPS Program, this title may be filled via a non-competitive appointment, which means no examination is required but all candidates must meet the minimum qualifications of the title for which they apply. At this time, agencies may recruit and hire employees by making temporary appointments. On June 26, 2024, if a temporay NY HELPS employee is satisfactorily performing in the position, the appointment will be changed from temporary pending Civil Service Commission Action to permanent non-competitive and the official probationary period will begin.
  • Beginning June 26, 2024, all appointments made under this program will be handled as permanent, non-competitive positions and the official probationary period will begin on the appointment date.
  • At a future date (within one year of permanent appointment), it is expected employees hired under NY HELPS will have their non-competitive employment status converted to competitive status, without having to compete in an examination. Employees will then be afforded with all of the same rights and privileges of competitive class employees of New York State. While serving permanently in a NY HELPS title, employees may take part in any promotion examination for which they are qualified. 

THERE IS NO EXAM REQUIRED FOR NY HELPS APPOINTMENTS
