Municipal experience is not required for many positions.  We are looking for candidates that offer a commitment to exceptional public service.  Burlington is a community with a robust profile of diversity, where all perspectives and backgrounds are embraced in order to allow us to best serve our Town.  We know that our organization is stronger when we have diversity on our team.  And our goal is for our team to reflect the global diversity of our citizens.  We welcome your application!

Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification.  We are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for the role!

Applications are required to be considered a candidate for any position.  Please complete the application as thoroughly and accurately as possible in order to help us best understand the skills that you offer.  

If you are applying for multiple positions, we do require you to complete a new application for each position. This is important so we can accurately track the positions for which you are interested, and it also provides you with the opportunity to update your application with any new positions or skills that you've obtained.

Applying online is strongly suggested to ensure the quickest review of your application, however, you may download our application for employment (PDF) and submit it to the Human Resources Office.



A resume is recommended and can be uploaded into the application.  Acceptable formats for uploading a resume are Word (.doc) or PDF (.pdf) files.

Cover Letter

A cover letter is encouraged to further showcase your background and skills that might not be evident in your application or resume.  To include a cover letter, you may upload a Word (.doc) or PDF (.pdf) file when completing the online application.


You may submit a list of references or letters of reference into your application.  References will not be checked without your acknowledgement.

Next Steps

Once you've submitted an online application, you will immediately receive an email confirming receipt of your application.  If you do not receive an email notification, please check your spam folder, as this confirmation is automatically generated.

Your submitted application will be reviewed and you will be contacted if your background appears to bring a dynamic that we need for a position.  We make every effort to communicate with you as information is available throughout the application process.

Please note that our average length of time to fill a position is 60 days and your patience throughout the process is appreciated!
