Recruitment Process

How To Apply and Application Deadlines
Applicants must possess the minimum qualifications listed for each recruitment to be considered for that job. Applicants must submit a separate County Application Form to the Human Resources Department for each job.

A resume or other supporting documentation may be attached to the application, but it may not be used as a substitute for completing any part of the application. Give full and complete information on the application that clearly demonstrates you meet all the requirements. Where a deadline is given, applications must be filed or postmarked on or before the final filing deadline as specified in the job posting.

Application Forms
Application forms can also be obtained from the Contra Costa County Human Resources Department.

With the exception of recruitments for which we are accepting online applications, application forms must be filed either in person or by mail at the address given for the Human Resources Department.
