Following the best sustainability practices of other higher education institutions, an AmeriCorps member will be tasked with continuing to implement the educational programs begun by the previously funded application from Gonzaga University--the Student Sustainability Leadership Program and the Employee Sustainability Ambassador Program--in addition to developing a similar program and applying it to yet to be determined businesses and community organizations in the City of Spokane and Spokane County. The goal will be to continue to educate and inform students and employees to motivate and work with others on local efforts to address aggressive global goals to care for the planet.

The AmeriCorps volunteer will develop the community program to catalyze community-wide change in our environment and our shared standard of living. This project will increase sustainability literacy and empower both students and employees in Spokane County to act as change agents. This position is contingent on funding.

Examination Details EXAMINATION PROCESS The examination will consist of a Training and Experience (T&E) Evaluation, weighted at 100% of the final score. You will need to meet the minimum qualifications and pass the examination for this position to be eligible for hire. T&E EVALUATION DETAILS We have designed the T&E to evaluate the relevance, level, recentness, progression, and quality of the applicant's education and training, and to elicit sufficient job-related information to evaluate the amount and quality of the applicant's previous experience, as well as any other information deemed meaningful to performing the duties of the position. Upon request, at time of application, the City will provide alternative accessible tests to individuals with disabilities that impair manual, sensory or speaking skills needed to take the test, unless we intend to measure those skills. IMPORTANT: The T&E is the Civil Service examination for this position. We present it as a Supplemental Questionnaire, which needs to be completed online and submitted as part of the application. You may preview the questions online in the tab marked "QUESTIONS" on the job announcement. NOTE: * Responses should be consistent with the information on your application and are subject to verification. "See Resume" or "See Application" are not qualifying responses and will not be considered. * Changes or corrections to your responses cannot be made once your application packet has been submitted. Duplicate applications will be disqualified. * Failure to complete all of the questions or incomplete responses will result in a lower score; therefore, it is advantageous for you to provide a full and complete response to each supplemental question. * Resumes or questionnaires uploaded as attachments to the application will not be accepted in lieu of completing each question online. * It may be more efficient to develop your responses in a word processing document and then paste them into the online questionnaire as you complete your application for submission. We encourage you to apply immediately. Online applications must be completed and submitted by 11:59 p.m. on the filling cut-off date. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity within our organization. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, marital status, familial status, genetic information, veteran/military status, or disability status.
