Big Sandy Area Development District      Policy Manual

Job Posting

It is the policy of the District to develop a staff which is directly responsive to the purposes of the District and its specific goals and objectives. Programmatically, staff activities must be specifically focused on and targeted to the needs of the many communities of the region, the respective units of government and related public and private developmental entities.Therefore, when District programs or project implementation requires staffing, the hiring and retention of staff will be guided by:

1. the stated Purpose of the District; and

2. strict adherence to the Personnel Policies and Procedures

In addition, it is the responsibility of District personnel, each employee, volunteer, and/or trainee to remain;

1. focused on assigned tasks;

2. committed to continual personal and corporate improvement; and

3. to illustrate same by consistent and progressive action on behalf of area communities.

Consequently, the District shall, as necessary hire, or retain committed, self motivated and pro-active employees, volunteers and work training program participants, being the only type of staff which the District can afford and/or tolerate.

Our job posting program provides you with the opportunity to indicate your interest in open positions and advance within the District according to your skills and experience. In general, we post all regular, full-time job openings.

Internal job openings will be posted in the e-mail system and normally remain open for 10 days. Each job posting notice will include the dates of the posting period, job title, department, location, job summary, essential duties, and qualifications (required skills and abilities).

To be eligible to apply for a posted job, you must have performed competently for at least 90 calendar days in your current position. If you have a written warning on file, or are on probation or suspension, you are not eligible to apply for posted jobs. You may only apply for posted jobs for which you possess the required skills, competencies, and qualifications.

To apply for an open position, submit a resume' to the Executive Assistant listing your job-related skills and accomplishments. You should also describe how your current experience with Big Sandy ADD and prior work experience and/or education qualifies you for the position.

We recognize the benefit of developmental experiences and encourage you to talk with your team leader about your career plans. We also encourage team leaders to support employees' efforts to gain experience and advance within Big Sandy ADD.

After you apply for a job, your team leader may be contacted to verify your performance, skills, and attendance. Any staffing limitations or other circumstances that might affect a prospective transfer may also be discussed.

Job posting is a way to inform employees of openings and to identify qualified and interested applicants who might not otherwise be known to the hiring department. We may also use other recruiting sources to fill open positions when it is in the best interest of the District.

The District shall maintain an updated organizational chart listing each position in the District and the respective incumbent for each such position, which collectively shall constitute its staffing plan. The staffing plan shall be published as an addendum to this policy, as warranted.
