Lateral transfer / voluntary demotion for employees

Current DCBS employees who wish to transfer or demote to another position within DCBS must complete the DCBS Lateral Transfer / Voluntary Demotion Request form (PDF). This form may be submitted at any time for current or future job openings.

Once you have submitted this form and a current resume, you will be considered a candidate anytime a vacancy is posted within DCBS in the classification(s) for which you have qualified and you will be contacted by the hiring division to schedule an interview. If you are not interested in interviewing, you can decline the interview. Your name remains on the Lateral Transfer List until you notify Employee Services that you wish to have your name removed. Should you promote to another position, you will be automatically dropped from the list. However, if you wish to be on the Lateral Transfer List in your new classification, you will need to submit a new Lateral Transfer Request form and current resume.

Send your Lateral Transfer / Voluntary Demotion Request Form (PDF) and current resume to:

By mail:

Department of Consumer and Business Services
Employee Services
PO Box 14480
Salem, OR 97309-0405

By fax: 503 378-5969

NOTE: If you wish to transfer to another state agency, you must contact the specific agency in which you are interested and ask what process the agency will require you to follow to be considered as a lateral or demotion candidate.
