This page provides direct access to the Class Specifications and the Compensation Plans FY 2013 for all of the positions used by the general Fairfax County Government. The Classification Plan is also available in pdf format. (You will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print pdf files.) Unlike a position description—which is unique to each established position—the Class Specifications provide an overview of the typical duties associated with a job classification. In addition, they also outline the minimum qualifications and necessary knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs) for each job class.
We have placed the Class Specifications here on our website primarily in response to inquiries from other jurisdictions throughout the country. Job applicants might also find them useful to gain more insight into job requirements.
To view and print the class specifications and the compensation plans you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your PC. If the documents do not load correctly you may need to install a current version of the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.
You may also view the Fairfax County Personnel Regulations that govern the operation of the Fairfax County merit system.
