State Classified Staff

About the State Classified Employee System

Classified employees are part of the Colorado Classified State Personnel System.   The Classified State Personnel System is a merit system, which means that all appointments and promotions to jobs in the system require applicants to apply and compete against similar standards.

The Colorado Constitution also requires that candidates for state classified jobs MUST BE RESIDENTS of Colorado, unless the State Personnel Board waives this requirement. If the residency requirement has been waived for a position it will be noted in the job announcement. In addition, only current permanent state government employees may apply for jobs listed under the Promotional/Transfer section.

Colorado State Government is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate for or against any applicant based on age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, political affiliation, or disability. All employment opportunities are open to qualified persons who are at least 16 years old (unless other age limits are required).
