We are a multidisciplinary office providing civil service administration, labor relations and other employment services.

Civil Service Administration

If you are seeking employment in local government, this is the place to learn about current and future opportunities in Madison County.  The county offers much diversity in the types of positions available with various levels of minimum qualifications.  Civil Service examinations are administered throughout the year for our competitive titles.  Go to the “Exams” tab for the list of upcoming exam titles, select the title that you are interested in and get information about the position as well as the required minimum qualifications.  If interested and you meet the minimum qualifications, just follow the instructions to apply either online or by mail.   If you meet the qualifications and are approved to participate, you can expect to receive an admission letter approximately one to two weeks prior to the date of the exam.  

For the list of titles that we are actively recruiting for, go to “Current Vacancies” for information on the position and instructions on how to apply.  Positions may also be advertised on the County Facebook page as well as in local newspapers.
