Part-time Clerical Support

Receptionist
Special Projects
Temporary Vacancy

If you want us to take on the clerical duties of someone who is on long-term medical leave or is absent for some other reason, we recognize your salary budget is already obligated. Therefore, OSS, without charge, will supply the department up to 20 hours of coverage. However, if the department has a vacant position and you need coverage while someone is recruited to fill the position, OSS will charge back hours at a cost of $39.30 per hour.
