HOW TO APPLY FOR A JOB
Step One: Find an open job that matches your qualifications.
A list of open positions can be viewed at the bottom of this page, immediately below these instructions. Open positions are also posted in the Human Resources Department at City Hall. All positions remain open until filled unless otherwise noted.
When you find a job that interests you, click on the Position Title to view a brief job description and any special requirements. You can also click on the job's Benefits Category to see an overview of benefits for that position. (Please note: Part-time and seasonal employees are not eligible for benefits.)
The City of Sunrise will only accept employment applications and resumes for positions that are currently open. Please do not submit an application if you do not meet the minimum requirements stated on the job posting.
Step Two: Obtain a job application.
In person. Visit the City of Sunrise Human Resources Department.
Online. Download the Application Packet for the position you are interested in by clicking on the corresponding Download Application link below on the right-most column of the job listings chart. This application has been specially formatted so that you may type directly into the document using your computer keyboard. For your convenience, you can fill in your responses and then print the finished application. Be sure to add your signature by hand.
By mail. You may request that an application be mailed to you only if you do not live in Broward County.
Contact the Human Resources Department at (954) 838-4522.
Step Three: Complete and submit your application.
Application instructions for each job are provided as part of that position's Application Packet. Be sure to review the Application Checklist before submitting your packet. It is the applicant's responsibility to complete the application in its entirety and provide any required documentation.
To apply for more than one position at a time, complete one application and submit a separate Minimum Requirements Form for each position you are applying for. You must also list each position's title on the first page of the application, under section one (1).
NOTE: POLICE AND FIRE POSITIONS EACH HAVE SPECIAL APPLICATION PACKETS THAT MUST BE USED WHEN APPLYING FOR THOSE JOBS. PLEASE READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, AS INCOMPLETE PACKETS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED. TO REITERATE, YOU MAY ONLY APPLY FOR THESE POSITIONS WHEN THEY ARE POSTED AS OPEN.
Generally, completed applications may be submitted to the Human Resources Department in person or by mail. Faxed or e-mailed applications cannot be accepted, because the City must have your original signature on file.
However, if you are applying for a position that requires a typing test, you must apply in person. We require that you take the test when you submit your application. Typing tests are administered at the Human Resources Department from Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The test takes approximately 10 minutes. No appointment is necessary.
Please visit our Hiring Practices page for a timeline of what happens after your application is submitted to the Human Resources Department.
Please CLICK on the title of the positions below you wish to view to access the Posting, Benefit Package and the Application. You may complete the application online and print it, but you will not be able to save it.
