Employment Opportunities

The City of Duluth hires regular employees under a civil service system which allows us to accept applications only when a specific job is being advertised. We also hire employees to fill temporary, seasonal positions which are not governed by the civil service system. You may apply for either regular or temporary positions when they are being advertised. Please check the space below for current openings and their requirements.

  • Open - means the selection is open to all qualified applicants.
  • Internal - means the selection is open only to qualified City employees who have passed their initial probation.
  • Promotional - means the selection is open only to qualified Police or Fire department employees who have passed their initial probation.
  • Open and Internal - means the selection is open to all qualified applicants, but qualified City employees who have passed their initial probation receive preference in hiring.

To apply, click on a job title in the listing below and select "Apply".

If this is the first time you are applying online, you will need to create an account and select a Username and Password. After your account has been established, you can build an application by clicking on the "Build Job Application" link. This application can be saved and used to apply for more than one job opening.

Please provide thorough and accurate information; incomplete applications may be scored inaccurately or rejected. Complete applications must be submitted to the Human Resources Department by 11:59 PM on the closing date.
