The Transfer List is open on a continuous basis, so applications are always accepted. Our recommendation is to submit an application if you think you might be interested, even if there is no vacancy currently. To be placed on the voluntary transfer list: 1. Click the (apply) button above and submit a complete online application and identify in the supplemental questionnaire the classification for which you are seeking a transfer. Your application should contain the most up to date and accurate information regarding your work history. 2. You may be required to participate inthe selection process (supplemental questions, oral panel interview, etc.)if requested by Human Resources or the hiring department. 3. For Lateral Transfers: The position you wish to transfer to must have the same salary range and similar qualifications as your current class title. 4. For Downgrading Transfers (voluntary demotions): The position you wish to transfer to must be a lower classification than the one you currently hold, and you must meet the minimum qualifications of the lower classification. If you are applying for a Downgrading Transfer, please indicate that inQuestion #2 of theSupplemental Questionnaire. Please Note: You must meet the requirements outlined above to be placed on a transfer list. Additional information regarding the transfer process may be found in Civil Service Commission Rule 23.

Once you have completed and submitted your application for the voluntary transfer list, the Recruitment & Selection Team will assign you to the appropriate list. Then when we receive a requisition from a department for recruitment, we will check those lists before running an open recruitment, and refer the names of those employees who have requested transfer for that classification. Departments are required to consider those transfer requests, but are not required to agree to the transfer. For Downgrading Transfers, your application serves as the required request. Once the department has considered your request, and if they agree to grant your request, it will then go to the Civil Service Commission for a hearing. The outcome of that hearing will ultimately determine whether or not the downgrading transfer is approved. Closing Date/Time:

Description PLEASE READ THIS BULLETIN IN ITS ENTIRETY THE CITY OF VALLEJO The City of Vallejo is located in Solano County and has a population of approximately 121,000 residents. Vallejo is a rapidly changing, highly diverse community located midway between the cities of San Francisco and Sacramento. It is a friendly, active waterfront community that attracts innovative, hardworking people and takes great pride in its 148-year history and maritime heritage. Residents of Vallejo are situated to take advantage of the best of what the area has to offer. Golf, museums, performing arts, boutique shopping, brewpubs and a wide selection of restaurants are all available in Vallejo. Residents and visitors alike enjoy Vallejo's delightful historical downtown area, weekly downtown farmer's market, and beautifully restored Victorian homes and business facades. Vallejo is also home to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, one of America's only combination wildlife, oceanarium and theme parks. THE DEPARTMENT The Vallejo Water Department is a dynamic organization engaged in growth and positive change for the benefit of our customers and community. The Department provides potable water to 121,000 customers through a highly complex system including multiple raw water sources, three treatment plants, a Sludge Dewatering Facility, 600 miles of distribution pipes, 8 pressure zones, 27 pump stations, and 37,000 service connections. Vallejo Water is a Treatment-5/Distribution-5 system. In 2017, Vallejo water services transitioned from a division of Public Works, to a standalone Water Department reporting directly to the City Manager. This change gives drinking water-related operations and issues greater visibility and strategic direction for the benefit of rate-payers. The Water Department's strategic goals include: infrastructure reliability, public trust, sustainability, organizational performance, and financial viability. Key initiatives include: Rehabilitation and replacement of aging infrastructure. Revenue streams that help offset water rates. Innovative approaches to management and technologies. Sustainable budgets and staffing. Pursuit of regional partnerships. Strategic, proactive engagement with the expanding regulatory environment. The Water Department's growth and enthusiasm about the future reflect the larger community's excitement and positivity. The City of Vallejo is on the move with many economic development opportunities underway, including the redevelopment of Mare Island (former Naval shipyard). New eateries, a thriving arts community, parks, and water front development are all contributing to Vallejo's revitalization. The City engages with all facets of civic life, and the Water Department's services provide a vital resource to our residents, businesses, schools, City departments, and community organizations. The Water Department has six Divisions: Water Treatment, Engineering, Distribution, Watershed and Facilities Management, and Administration/Conservation.
