Types of Recruitments

There are five main types of recruitments: regular, relief, grant-funded, open limited, and promotional.

Regular or “permanent” positions may be full or part time and offer benefits according to their respective Memorandum of Understanding or Compensation Plan.


Relief positions are temporary positions used to cover seasonal workloads, emergency workloads of limited duration, or other situations involving a fluctuating staff. Relief employees may work a fixed schedule or on an on-call basis depending on the classification and departmental needs. Relief positions offer no benefits. Relief employees serve at the pleasure of their department head and employment may be terminated at any time.


A grant-funded position is created within and funded solely by an awarded financial grant. Grant-funded employees serve at the pleasure of their grant’s supervising department head, and employment will be terminated if the financial grant is not renewed.

Open Limited

Only current county relief, probationary, permanent, and/or grant-funded employees are eligible to apply.


Only current permanent and probationary county employees are eligible to apply. Promotional recruitments may be limited to a particular department.
