Because the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General is an independent state agency we offer a wide range of positions. In addition to our more well-known positions such as our Deputy Attorney General and Criminal Agent (Special and Narcotics) positions, the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General offers various administrative, clerical and operational support positions within the office. Some of note are:

Clerk Typist:

An employee in this position performs clerical work, which requires the utilization of typing skills and the processing of a variety of documents including the verification of information, performing arithmetic calculations, coding, and assisting the public in completing governmental forms. The position involves typing correspondence, reports, transaction, and transmittals, and similar documents as part of the clerical documents processing of an office or functional activity. Work involves the responsibility for a significant aspect of a work process, an involved single office activity which is production or control oriented, or other multiple activities which are comparable in scope and complexity. Work may involve providing secretarial services to one or more individuals. Work may involve providing training and guidance to new employees and fulfilling a lead worker role for routine clerical operations. Work is subject to periodic changes in operating procedures and requires some adaptability to shifts in work schedule. Employees work with considerable independence within standard operating procedures, however, detailed supervisory guidance and review is received for new or unusual situations and changes in operating procedures and policies.
