SECTION 1. METHODS: Department heads shall advise the Director in a timely manner of current and anticipated vacancies. The Director shall determine the methods to be used in recruitment. The Director may postpone, cancel, extend or otherwise modify the recruitment efforts as circumstances indicate.
SECTION 2. EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY: In planning and conducting recruitments the Director and all other persons involved will give due consideration to the goals of the Equal Employment Opportunity Program.
SECTION 3. ANNOUNCEMENTS:
A. Announcements for examinations shall be posted on line on the County’s official designated website or in the principal Human Resources Office of the County for the duration of the filing period. Announcements shall be given such other publicity as the Director deems warranted to attract a sufficient number of qualified candidates to compete. Recruitments shall be of one of the following types:
1. Regular Recruitment: A regular recruitment shall be used in most cases. Regular examination announcements shall specify a filing period of at least 14 days and shall clearly state a final filing date.
2. Continuous Recruitment: In instances where the need for employees is frequent or continuing, or there is a labor market scarcity, the Director may announce examinations with no final filing date and conduct recruitments of sufficient duration to assure the County’s needs are met. Any time a continuous recruitment is to be closed, at least 5 days’ notice to that effect shall be given prior to the final filing date.
3. Limited Recruitment: When it is anticipated that the applicant group will be large in relation to the anticipated vacancies, the Director may restrict the recruitment to limit the size of the applicant group by: a) establishing a shorter filing period than that required for regular recruitments; b) specify a maximum number of applications which will be accepted, and that the recruitment shall close immediately when that number is reached; or c) other means which are appropriate to the circumstances.
- Recruitment or examination announcements will describe the duties of the position, minimum qualifications, salary, closing date for accepting applications (where applicable), testing or other selection procedures, and such other information as the Director considers appropriate.
