About Civil Service Board

The Hillsborough County Civil Service Board is a shared-services or centralized provider of services related to filling jobs, managing jobs, managing employee records, and ensuring fair treatment of employees.

The Civil Service Board serves 21 independent County Agencies who have nearly 10,000 combined employees.  With a total staff of only 29, the Civil Service Board provides these services at an very efficient ratio of 1 staff member to every 344 employees.

The Citizens of Hillsborough County realize considerable cost savings by using a single, central organization to provide these services to many government agencies.  While a shared-services approach is common in private business, it is not common in Florida government.  The Civil Service Board is one of many ways that Hillsborough County Government achieves high marks for efficiency and effectiveness.
