New York State Hiring for Emergency Limited Placement (HELP) Program

To help agencies fill critical positions such as critical direct care and health and safety positions, the Department of Civil Service has developed the HELP Program to streamline the appointment process allowing State agencies to hire diverse, qualified permanent employees quickly and without examinations.

NEW: Based upon the success of the HELP program (nearly 7,000 New Yorkers hired in 2023!), the Department of Civil Service will be launching an expanded program, NY HELPS, in May 2024 to streamline hiring. Check back soon for more updates.
