DEP Hiring Information

The Department of Environmental Protection is a covered agency under the WV Division of Personnel (DOP) and governed by the Administrative Rule.  Therefore to be considered for employment with the Department of Environmental Protection, applicants must currently be employed in a “covered civil service” position and meet the minimum requirements for the advertised position, test through the Division of Personnel to get established on DOP’s referral listings, or be eligible for reinstatement into a Division of Personnel covered position.  Refer to the following link for more information about the Division of Personnel’s processes and procedures. http://www.personnel.wv.gov.  

 

An exception to the hiring process is made for all positions in the Division of Air Quality and attorney positions for the Office of Legal Services.  Positions within the Division of Air Quality follow the hiring requirements for the agency; however, testing through the Division of Personnel is not required.  To fill positions within the Division of Air Quality, applicants are required to submit a completed “DOP Application for Examination” to the Department of Environmental Protection by the established deadline.  You may download the “DOP Application for Employment” from here.
