Please remember that applications must be received by these deadlines rather than postmarked.

While we provide updated listings of our employment opportunities on a weekly basis, the City of Portsmouth may close or withdraw any position included in this listing at any time. If you are offered employment with the City of Portsmouth, then you will be required to provide documentation as proof that you are a United States citizen or a lawfully authorized alien qualified to work in the United States prior to starting work with us.

The City of Portsmouth is proud of our commitment to maintain a drug free and alcohol free workplace. All persons offered employment in Safety Sensitive Positions would also be required to submit to a pre-employment drug/alcohol test as well as random, unannounced testing during such employment.

For any applicant that requires special accommodations in order to apply for our positions, please feel free to contact our department at (757) 393-8626 for assistance.
