NY HELPS

The NYS Civil Service Commission recently approved the New York Hiring for Emergency Limited Placement Statewide (NY HELPS) program. Through this temporary program, NYS is waiving open competitive examinations, enabling the Workers' Compensation Board and other State agencies to make appointments to positions filled on an open competitive basis without candidates having to take civil service tests and be reachable based on their scores.

At the Board, this means we can fill many of our key positions based on candidates' job qualifications and experience alone. These positions include, but are not limited to:

While the program is being finalized this spring, agencies can operate under the guidelines now, recruiting and hiring for temporary appointments into NY HELPS titles without exams or lists. Once the program is finalized, those and subsequent appointments made under these guidelines will become permanent under the Civil Service Law as if the appointees had taken the respective civil service exam.

Check out the Board's current vacancies open to the public - and check back as new positions are added regularly. All roles that are eligible for hiring under NY HELPS have a notation in the job title. Promotional titles are excluded.

The NY HELPS program is a fantastic opportunity for qualified individuals to start a fulfilling career with New York State!
