Does Placer County use any Temporary Employment Agencies?

Placer County does not make regular use of outside temporary agencies, but does recruit to create a pool of extra-help clerical staff. Those wishing to work as a Temporary Office Assistant may submit an application for this classification via the employment opportunities page when the recruitment for this class is open. If we are not currently recruiting for this classification you may submit an interest card to be notified when we are again accepting applications.

This temporary class is distinguished from the clerical series in that positions are filled on an intermittent basis and limited to 1,000 hours per fiscal year. Employment in this class is temporary in nature and therefore not eligible for County benefits. No permanent appointments to the Classified Service will be made in this classification.
