Employment Opportunities at the OWRB
The OWRB, Oklahoma's Water Agency, provides a wide variety of interesting job opportunities related to state water resource management. As a state agency, the Water Board pledges to provide equal opportunities for both prospective and existing employees. We do not discriminate in regard to race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, or disability.
How to Apply for a Job at the OWRB
There are two distinct types of employment at the Water Board: classified service, which includes those employees and positions under the jurisdiction of the Oklahoma Merit System, and unclassified service, or those employees and positions excluded from coverage of the Oklahoma Merit System.
To apply for a Classified Service position:
This process begins at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), located in the basement of the Jim Thorpe Building, 2101 N Lincoln Blvd., in Oklahoma City. After reviewing OWRB job vacancies, if there is a specific job that interests you and the position is classified, an official State of Oklahoma Employment Application may be downloaded or completed online at the Web site of the State Office of Personnel Management. Pay special attention to education and experience requirements printed on the job announcement to see if you meet the minimum qualifications for the position. If a test is required, only applicants who have been certified as possessing the minimum qualifications may test. Examination results will be mailed to you. If you receive a passing score your name is entered on the register and ranked, along with other applicants, according to criteria established by the OPM with input from state agencies that use the job family.
When the Water Board has a position to fill, we ask OPM for a certificate or register, which includes the names of persons who have been certified as qualified for a particular position. We then conduct interviews and select from among the highest ranked applicants according to the merit rules. The OWRB can also consider qualified candidates who are currently in the classified service that submit an OPM Form 4b.
