Welcome to the Columbus Civil Service Commission’s webpage, connecting you to the many services we offer.  While our City Charter identifies several responsibilities for the Commission, we’re probably best known for our work in assisting City departments and elected officials with keeping the City’s nearly 9000 positions filled with qualified and competent individuals making a difference in our community every day!

If you're seeking employment with the City or if you're a current City employee, please take a few minutes to explore the information and resources linked to the tabs below.  We’re hoping you’ll find these pages helpful as you consider the option to come “Work With Us,” or continue to advance your career at the City of Columbus!
