Civil Service Jobs

Civil Service Job Overview

Civil service is the act of a civilian performing work in a governmental agency. Civil service positions exist on the local, state and federal level in many countries.

One of the largest civil service employers in the U.S. is the United States Postal Service. They ensure that letters and packages reach their end destination. Police officers are also Civil Servants. They help enforce both local and federal laws. Other examples of civil service jobs include positions in the fire department, department of motor vehicles, the veteran's affairs department and health and human resources. Most civil service positions come with health and retirement benefits provided by the government.

Civil Service Job Education Requirements

Civil Servant positions require a high school diploma. Having a college diploma may be beneficial. However, secondary education is not required for every position. Most Civil Servant positions do require passing the civil servant exam. This is a test used to make sure an individual is qualified to work for the government. Other requirements depend on the position. Police officers need to graduate from a police academy. Firefighters are often required to pass both a written and physical exam.

Civil Service Job Market

Civil service is a relatively stable career field, but it can fluctuate because of changes in government budgeting. According to compiled labor statistics, the number of police officers will increase by 5.9 percent to 692,700 over the ten years between 2012 and 2022. However, according to the same statistics, the amount of post office clerk positions will likely shrink by as much as 26.8 percent in those years. Other careers in related fields that may experience similar growth trends include International Police jobs and Human Services technician jobs.

Civil Service Job Salary Information

The amount of salary a Civil Servant receives depends on the position. According to employment data, civil engineers make a median income of $80,800 a year. According to the same statistics, police officers make a median income of $56,100 a year, and postal service clerks make a yearly median income of $53,800 a year.
