Four types of public employees

Currently, there are four types of public employees, which we will differentiate according to whether they are:

  • Career officials.
  • Acting officials.
  • Labor staff.
  • Eventual staff.

Career officials

They are those who have a fixed contract with the administration and carry out their work permanently. In turn, these career officials are divided into the following categories according to the qualifications required in their examinations:

  • Group A which in turn are divided into A1 and A2. To opt for one of these positions you must be in possession of a university degree or equivalent. Each of the subcategories differ in the level of responsibility for the functions to be performed and the characteristics of the entrance examinations.
  • B Group. They are those opponents who are in possession of the Title of Superior Technician.
  • Group C. They are divided into two subgroups: C1 and C2. Those of C1 must have the title of Baccalaureate and those of C2 the title of Graduate in Compulsory Secondary.

Acting officials

They perform the same functions as career officials and hold such position when any of the following circumstances occurs:

  1. There are vacancies.
  2. Replacement of permanent personnel.
  3. When you have to carry out a temporary work program.
  4. Excess or accumulation of work.

Labor staff

You have an employment contract formalized in writing by one of the Public Administrations.

Temporary staff

They have a temporary and non-permanent employment contract. They usually provide qualified functions of trust or special advice.
