Saginaw County Recruitment, Selection, & Notification Procedures
Saginaw County actively recruits to fill vacancies through the posting and distribution of Job Vacancy Announcements to, local agencies, two and four year colleges and universities throughout the state, and on job placement websites, including Indeed. Job Vacancy Announcements list the knowledge, experience, skills and abilities needed for the position, as well as detailing the types of duties routinely performed by individuals.
Individuals applying for a position have several options to submit their applications. They include:
- Applying on-line at Saginaw County Job Postings.
- Placing your application in the drop box located outside the main entrance to the Courthouse.
- Mail application to Personnel Division of the Controller’s Office, Saginaw County Governmental Center, 111 South Michigan Ave., Saginaw MI 48602.
- Faxing to 989-790-5566.
- Drop off to the Controller’s Office located on the first floor of the Courthouse between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm.
Almost all Job Vacancy Announcements contain a specific deadline date. Such deadlines are strictly adhered to. In instances where a specific deadline is posted, materials must be received by 12 midnight on the closing date. Mailed materials must be postmarked by or on the deadline date.
Resumes will be accepted to demonstrate interest in a County position. However, it is strongly recommended that applicants complete a County application prior to the deadline date. Applicants selected for further consideration based on their resumes will be required to complete an application as the selection process progresses.
Applications and resumes are accepted for posted positions only. Materials submitted as a general inquiry will not be maintained as the County does not keep files for such applications.
In most cases, application materials are screened by representatives from the Personnel Division. Those applicants who meet the minimum qualifications for a position are sent on to the Department for further consideration. The employing department will schedule interviews with selected applicants. Such interviews are routinely scheduled within a four-week period after the posted closing date for accepting applications.
Upon completion of the interviews, the employing department selects an individual to fill the vacancy. All selections are made contingent on completion of necessary paperwork or tests, a pre-employment physical and drug screen, applicable background checks, and presentation of proof of degrees, licenses, certificates, or other types of documentation required to meet the minimum qualifications of a position.
After an application deadline has passed, updates on the status of filling vacant positions can be found on the "Closed Postings" page. Once the application deadline has passed, the posting will be noted as closed, it will be updated to filled once an individual has been hired for the position.
If an accommodation is needed for the purpose of completing the application, taking a required test, participating in a job interview, or other part of the application process please contact the Personnel Division for information and assistance at (989) 790-5213.
The Personnel Division does not review files of previous applicants for newly posted vacancies.
It is the Personnel Division's recommendation that applicants submit new application materials, which represent their current qualifications and experience clearly, and appropriately, for each and every position for which they apply.
Thank you for applying with Saginaw County.
