Support Professionals

Please be aware that many City government positions are civil service positions, and the employees who occupy them must be permanent in the civil service title. To hold a civil service title, an applicant must first take and pass an exam and then be appointed from a list. Potential applicants can consult the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services for detailed information on civil service examinations. Learn about upcoming exams.

Appointees to support professional positions must become residents of the City of New York within 90 days of their appointments.
