Note to Applicants


Thank you for your interest in employment with the City of Athens.

In accordance with city policy, first consideration for job vacancies is given to qualified city employees. With the exception of police officer positions, applications from the public are only accepted for specific vacancies that have been advertised with the Alabama State Employment Office and posted in the Human Resources physical location or on the City's website.  All job posting with a specific closing date applications must be received before the end of closing day to be considered.  If a posting states "Open Until Filled" there is not a true closing date and we will accept applications until the Manager instructs us to stop.  

A properly completed original City of Athens application is required. Faxed copies are accepted, but must be followed up with the original application. We do not only accept resumes alone.  If you wish to apply, you can submit your application by one of the following:

1.  come by the Human Resources Department between the hours of 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
2.  fax @ 256-233-8726
3.  email @ humanresources@athensal.us
4.  by USPS mail to:   City of Athens
       Attn:  HR
                                  P.O. Box 1089
                                  Athens, AL  35612

Our employment process for each position generally takes from 4 to 7 weeks before a final selection is made. For each vacancy, we receive 30-60 applications.  Please be assured that your application will be thoroughly reviewed by Human Resources. However, only the top applicants for each position are selected for interviews. If you do not hear from the City within 2-3 weeks concerning an interview, you can assume that other candidates were a closer skill match for the position.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact HR @ 256-233-8737.

Sincerely,
Human Resources Department
