History & Purpose
The Employees Civil Service Commission is the hiring conduit for the Charter Township of Clinton. The Commission was established in 1970 by a vote of the electorate to adopt the Michigan State statute authorizing townships to enact Civil Service Systems.
The purpose of the Employees Civil Service Commission is to implement rules and regulations covering personnel and conditions of employment in such a manner as to relieve elected officials from constituency requests for assistance in securing Township employment and provide employees freedom from political pressures.
These rules and regulations are subject to revision by the Employees Civil Service Commission, as changing times and conditions dictate, supplemented by reasonable request of the Township Board, appointing authorities, and applicable State and Federal law.
Vacancies and promotions are filled by competitive examinations administered by the Employees Civil Service Commission. Usually, external applicants are hired only when an internal candidate cannot fill a vacancy.
The Employees Civil Service Commission accepts employment applications at all times, regardless of whether or not vacant positions exist. Job applicants are encouraged to indicate areas of interest, special skills, certifications, or licenses on their applications. Applicants must be authorized to work in the United States.
Job applications are kept on file for one year after receipt. They may be renewed and extended for an additional one-year period by request to the Employees Civil Service Commission.
