The Temporary Assignment Program (TAP) recruits and hires temporary employees for all County departments. Most TAP employees are hired as "Temporary Assistants" and fill assignments for many of the job classifications listed in our Job Descriptions. TAP assignments are a great way to learn about working for the County while working on a temporary, at-will basis. During their assignment, many TAP employees find the County is a great place to work and seek permanent, full-time employment through our regular competitive selection process.
Applicants for TAP assignments must meet the same requirements as applicants for regular positions, which means they must meet all minimum job qualifications, pass any required exams, and undergo a background check and physical examination/drug screen.
Depending on the needs of the particular department and assignment, the length of the assignment can vary but typically lasts for six months. Employment is "at-will," which means the employee can be released at any time for any reason or no reason.
TAP employees do not receive the benefits that regular employees receive. The TAP Pay Rate is set at 5.5% less than the pay established for the regular job classification.
The Medical Assignment Program (MAP) is a program within TAP that specializes in recruiting and hiring for our many Per Diem job classifications and medical-related temporary assignments for the Riverside County Regional Medical Center, Department of Public Health, and the Department of Mental Health. Our in-house nurse registry and medical on-call pool allows employees to work in a variety of healthcare settings, with schedule flexibility for medical personnel. The pay rate for Per Diem positions is set in the specific Per Diem job classifications in our Job Descriptions.
