PUTNAM COUNTY JOB SPECIFICATIONS
Job Specifications are job descriptions. The purpose of the job specification is to provide information about the functions, duties and qualification requirements for each job that has been classified in Putnam County civil service. A job specification is a formal written document which defines the duties and responsibilities of the job, and lists examples of typical work activities. The job specification stipulates the knowledge, skills, abilities and personal characteristics required for successful performance of the work, and states the minimum qualifications required for appointment.
Broad Classification. In Putnam County, jobs are generally classified as broadly as possible. This means the job specification will be general and open-ended enough to describe a position even when it is established in a number of different places across the county. The same position in different work locations will likely involve specifically different, though generally related, duties in each workplace. For example, an Office Assistant in the County Clerk’s Office would have different specific duties than an Office Assistant in a school district, but they are both Office Assistants with the same broad job specification. Job specifications are not intended to describe details of any single job. That’s why the job specification document states that Typical Work Activities are illustrative only (do not include all of the work that might be appropriately performed by an incumbent).
Civil Service Job Opportunities. The job specifications posted on this site are for informational purposes only. The jobs they describe are not necessarily open for application. To view information about civil service job opportunities in Putnam County, click here.
