The Fairfield Civil Service Commission is responsible for administering and enforcing Civil Service laws adopted by the City as well as those of the State of Ohio. The Commission is composed of three citizens who are appointed by the Fairfield City Council and serve in the manner provided for in Ohio Revised Code (124.40) and the City Charter.

The Commission is also responsible for oversight of the hiring process for certain positions in the City. Police Officer, Firefighter/Paramedic and most of the non-exempt, hourly positions are classified under Civil Service. As such, they require Civil Service examinations and the establishment of eligibility lists from which candidates are to be hired. The appointed secretary of the Commission arranges for and conducts the examinations and maintains the eligibility lists for the benefit of appointing authorities.

The Civil Service Commission is also responsible for positions in Fairfield City Schools. For current job opportunities at Fairfield City Schools, click here.

Announcements of Civil Service examinations are made in or on the local news media, the City’s social media sites, bulletin boards at the Fairfield Municipal Building and the Fairfield Lane Public Library, and the job opportunities page.
