Willingness to work evenings at least once a week, up to three times a week, and a weekend shift roughly once every two months, as well as flexibility and a positive, team-oriented attitude are required. There are opportunities to take on independent projects outside of core responsibilities. This is a great position for a candidate seeking to gain entry and experience to New York City government.
