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.

A properly completed original City of Athens application is required. (click here to download a printable application) Faxed copies are accepted, but must be followed up with the original application. If you wish to apply, please come by the Human Resources Department between the hours of 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. The HR Department is located in the Temporary City Hall, 2nd Floor 1806 Wilkinson Street, Athens , Alabama . For information, you may contact the HR department at 256-233-8737.
Our employment process for each position generally takes from four to seven weeks before a final selection is made. For each vacancy, we receive 30-60 applications; therefore, we are unable to respond to individual applications in writing or to answer numerous phone inquiries concerning the status of a position.
Please be assured that your application will be thoroughly reviewed by Human Resources. However, only the best 5 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.
