City of Wilmington Employment Information
The City of Wilmington welcomes and appreciates your interest in employment with the City. Outlined below is information describing the City’s employment process that will assist you in your application process.
Equal Employment Opportunity
As we strive to maintain a diverse workforce, the City of Wilmington encourages all qualified persons to apply without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, age, religious affiliation or disability.
 
Job Opening Information
A current listing of job openings is available on our Web Site www.wilmingtonnc.gov. Positions also are posted at the Human Resources office and with the Employment Security Commission.

The City of Wilmington only accepts applications for specific open positions.
 
Employment Application
Our employment application is designed to gather information to evaluate your qualifications for the position for which you are applying. If you wish to apply for more than one position, a separate application must be submitted for each position. Please ensure all pertinent information is documented on the application. Please don’t indicate “See Resume/Attachment”. The application is your introduction to the department so every effort should be made to make your application legible and complete.

The employment application and all related information requested should be received in Human Resources by 5:00 p.m. of the application deadline. Applications received after the application deadline will not be considered for the position. All information on the application is subject to verification.
 
Application Consideration

The application review process begins after the closing date for applications. Human Resources receives and carefully reviews all applications and refers to the hiring department candidates whose qualifications best match the position’s posted requirements based on the information presented on the application. The hiring department reviews the referred applications and determines applicants to interview. Simply fulfilling the minimum qualifications for a position does not assure an interview. Candidates being offered an interview may not be contacted immediately following the closing date. Your patience in the process is appreciated.
 
Conditional Job Offer

All new employees will be offered the position contingent on passing a drug screen. Designated positions in Police and Fire will also require a pre-employment physical. The free screening is provided by the City of Wilmington. Positions that require, or will require, CDL individuals must successfully complete a DOT physical. Failure to pass the tests will disqualify you from further consideration for this position.

Additionally, some positions may require a driving record and criminal history record check prior to employment. Failure to meet the City’s designated standard will result in rescinding the job offer or dismissal.
 
Pay and Benefits

The City of Wilmington offers a competitive salary package. Comprehensive benefits include health, life and disability insurance, as well as paid holidays, vacation and sick leave and a retirement package.
 
Verification of Employment Eligibility

Under the Immigration, Reform and Control Act of 1986, all new hires will be required to provide appropriate documentation to establish identity and right to work in the United States.


Completing the employment application is the first step in the selection process. You will not be considered unless you meet the minimum qualifications as posted in the advertisement. In order to be fairly considered, answer all questions completely and accurately, relating your education, training, and experience to the position for which you are applying. No information in this application is intended to be used for discriminatory purposes. A resume may be attached, but not substituted for requested information. The Human Resources Department will keep you informed of the selection process. If hired you must provide appropriate documents to verify your eligibility for employment under the Immigration, Reform and Control Act of 1986.
