The Personnel Department provides the Departments of Jefferson Parish with qualified candidates for employment in positions of public service and guidance as to the principles and merits of civil service employment.
Vision: The Personnel Department strives to serve the public by providing the means by which the general public and current employees can learn of, apply for, and fairly compete for Parish employment opportunities. The Personnel Department further seeks to enable the Departments of Jefferson Parish to make informed decisions regarding civil service employment and assist in the appointment of qualified candidates for those Department's positions.
