THE PURPOSE of the Saginaw SAP program is to inspire local students with the opportunity to explore public service first-hand as a seasonal entry-level employee and provide temporary relief to stretched city departments.
THE VISION of the Saginaw SAP program is to establish an annual stream of workers to departments needing entry level assistance while providing guidance to participants who may be interested in public service. At the end of the seasonal employment, well-performing participants may be offered full-time opportunities with the City of Saginaw.
Participants will be hired on as seasonal employees meaning they will work for a maximum of a 120-day period. Seasonal employment allows participants to work an unlimited number of hours so long as it is within a period of 120 days. Participants will be allowed to create their own schedule of hours so long as it meets the needs of the department and totals no less than 20 hours per week.
As part of the program, the city will assign the participant with the department in need of entry-level assistance. The department will typically be advertised before the program begins. Participants will be given the opportunity to explore other departments should they be interested, but will predominantly be stationed with the department previously advertised.
