Human Resources

Welcome to the webpage for the Town of Pittsboro's Human Resources Department. Below is information regarding hiring policies and procedures, tips for filling out job applications, and more.

Equal Employment Opportunity

The Town of Pittsboro is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We pledge to provide equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, pregnancy, status as a parent, family medical history or genetic information, national origin, political affiliation, disability (physical or mental), age, military service, or other non-merit-based factors. 

Employment Application

The Online Employment Application is designed to assist the hiring department in evaluating your qualifications for the position for which you are applying. Please read the job description carefully to be sure your background meets the position's requirements. 

If you wish to apply for more than one position, please submit a separate application for each position. Each application must have the specific position title that you are applying for and an original signature. Resumes may be submitted as a supplement to the completed application. To ensure consideration of your application, it must be received by Human Resources by 5:00 p.m. on the closing date identified in the Job Announcement.

Resumes Will Not Be Accepted in Lieu of A Completed Application. 

Application Tips

Applications and supplemental documents should be typed or printed legibly. Applications should be completed fully and provide sufficient description of prior work experience. Applications that have “see resume” in the work history will not be considered. 

Paper Application Tip - Be sure that the “position applied for” on the application is filled out to ensure correct consideration of your application. 

Application Consideration 

The Town of Pittsboro only accepts employment applications when specific job openings are available. The Human Resources Department reviews each application carefully to identify candidates whose qualifications most closely match the position requirements. The hiring department then reviews and conducts interviews for the position. 

The candidate may not be contacted immediately. The employment process can take up to 3-4 weeks. Your patience during this process is appreciated. 

The Town of Pittsboro reserves the right to re-advertise, delay, or cancel the filling of a position. 

If you need special assistance in the employment process, please get in touch with the Town’s Human Resources Department in one of the following ways:

Background Investigation 

A background investigation will be conducted on the successful candidate, which will be job-related and consistent with the business necessity for the position and may include an inquiry into an employee or applicant’s criminal and driving history, education, previous employment/job experience, knowledge, skills, and abilities; credentials or licensure; character; physical fitness; and other qualifications as required for the position. 

Unless local, state, and federal law requires, a conviction record will not automatically exclude a candidate from employment consideration. 

Employment Eligibility Verification

As a condition of employment, individuals hired by the Town of Pittsboro must present proof of identity and their eligibility to work in the United States. The Town of Pittsboro participates in the United States Department of Homeland Security E-Verify program.
