Minimum QualificationsSubject of ExaminationHow to Apply

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: On or before April 2, 2005, you must be a qualified employee of the New York State Department of Civil Service and have had permanent competitive or 55-b/55-c service as follows:

For 06-560: as a Chief Staffing Services Representative
For 06-561: as a Chief Staffing Services Representative or Principal Staffing Services Representative

If you were permanently appointed to a qualifying title and have served continuously in this title, you are eligible to file for this examination.

QUALIFYING EXPERIENCE FOR APPOINTMENT FROM THE ELIGIBLE LIST: After one year of the service described in the minimum qualifications, successful candidates will be qualified for appointment from the eligible list.

SUBJECT OF EXAMINATION: The examination consists of meeting the minimum qualifications on or before April 2, 2005, and your best score of 70 or higher on any previously held High-Level Managers and Administrators Promotion Test Battery, or the April 2, 2005, holding.

NOTE: Candidates intending to take the 2005 High Level Managers and Administrators Promotion Test Battery must apply separately for that test.

Final scores will be computed by using your best score of 70 or higher on the High Level Managers and Administrators Promotion Test Battery. Rank on the eligible list will be determined after adding any wartime veterans' credits to your final passing score.

SENIORITY: The relative importance of length of service in preparing candidates for these management-level positions will not add to the ability of the examination to make merit distinctions necessary for promotion. Therefore, there will be no credit granted for seniority in this examination.

DUTIES: Working as a team, the Director, Division of Staffing Services; the Assistant Director, Staffing Services; and Staffing Services Program Manager will coordinate the management and direction of the Division.
