We are hiring Case Workers and a Social Welfare Examiner to be part of our Department of Social Services team! These titles have been approved under the NYS Civil Service HELP Program, which means the exam requirements have been temporarily waived through December of 2024. To learn more and apply, please visit our Career Opportunities section.

Saratoga County is hiring Case Workers as part of the NY HELPS-Local program. The NY HELPS-Local program simplifies the hiring process by temporarily eliminating the civil service exam for certain positions. This program allows Saratoga County to hire qualified employees without the need for examinations. Candidates are still required to meet all qualification requirements, and this does not apply to all positions. For the duration of the NY HELPS-Local Program, employees hired to qualifying titles will be appointed on a permanent basis.

A great Case Worker is someone who prioritizes the needs of others, treating each client as a top priority and working diligently to secure the best resources for their situation. As a Case Worker, you would maintain positive communication with clients and regularly check up on their progress. If you can balance empathy and professionalism, and if you are a self-starter with excellent time management and organizational capabilities, then this may be the perfect opportunity for you.

A strong Social Welfare Examiner has a desire to support their community. As a Social Welfare Examiner, you would support individuals and families in your community in need of assistance facing financial difficulties. Responsibilities include gathering information, reviewing applications, and conducting interviews to determine eligibility for vital programs such as food stamps, Medicaid, and temporary assistance. If you have a strong reputation for resolving problems, along with excellent time management and organizational skills, consider applying for this opportunity.

At Saratoga County, we value the well-being of our employees and encourage continuous growth. You will be part of a dedicated team within government departments like social services, committed to serving others and making a difference in their lives.
