After the hiring authority selects the top candidate for a position, the Human Resources Department will conduct a background investigation which will include employment, driving history (for those positions requiring driving), criminal investigation, and other reports which may include information regarding character, work habits, performance and experience of past employment from previous employers.

Whenever a position becomes available, the Human Resources Department will create an Employment Opportunity posting. This posting will contain a brief job description, statement of minimum educational and experience requirements, and will include a description of any special qualifications which may be required. Postings will be available for review in the Human Resources Department at City Hall and on the city's website. Employment applications must be received in the Human Resources Department by 6 p.m. on the posted closing date. Resumes cannot be substituted for this requirement, but may accompany a completed employment application.
In order to ensure your application receives the attention it deserves, you will need to submit a separate application for each open position for which you wish to be considered. It is very important that you fill out the application completely, even if you attach a resume. Do not state "see resume" when asked to describe your responsibilities, experience, and employment dates. Your qualifications will be evaluated on the basis of information you provide on the application itself. Your resume will be reviewed for clarification purposes only. If you need more space to describe additional work experience relevant to the position, continue on a separate sheet of paper utilizing the same format.
No, a separate application form is required for each open position for which you are interested.
All applications must be submitted electronically through our Applicant Tracking System (ATS), which can be accessed 24/7 through the city’s career portal: www.margatefl.com/207/Job-Opportunities. Should you need assistance, please contact the Human Resources Department at (954) 935-5270 during regular business hours, which are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., excluding holidays.
