[ARCHIVED] TVF&R Seeks Chief Examiner for Civil Service Commission

Apply to be our Civil Service Chief Examiner

Have you been looking for an opportunity to give back to your community in a valuable way? What about using your expertise in human resources to serve Oregon’s largest fire district?

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue is accepting applications from qualified candidates interested in contracting with the District to serve as the chief examiner for its Civil Service Commission.

The chief examiner reviews and approves all entrance and promotional exam plans, certifies lists of eligible candidates, and approves the removal of names from the eligible list; acts as the decision-making authority for rule interpretation, exceptions, temporary appointments, appointment extensions, inquiries, and appeals; and serves as the investigator for examination appeals in accordance with the adopted Civil Service Rules. The chief examiner also consults with District leaders in areas of civil service laws, rules, and processes.

The typical time commitment for the chief examiner’s scope of work is eight meetings per year for Commission and District meetings; six to eight actions per month (to review, approve, and be available); and four hours per month to review issues such as reinstatement to a list.

Qualifications of an ideal candidate for this role include:

  • Preferably reside or own property within TVF&R’s service area.
  • Professional expertise in Oregon civil service laws, merit principles, and personnel administration. 
  • Professional experience in the field of human resources with a working knowledge of conducting workplace investigations, preferably in a public service agency.
