The Human Resources Department is responsible for the activities associated with the City’s personnel. Employees of the City are the number one resource in meeting the needs of our community. All employment decisions are made on the basis of merit. We welcome qualified applicants, without regard to their race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, marital status, medical condition or disability.
If you are seeking employment with the City, the Human Resources Department will be glad to help you in these areas:
*The application process
*Employee benefit and compensation information
*Employee rules and regulations
Applicants may apply on-line through HRePartners Online Employment Opportunities. This website shows employment opportunities with several partner entities. Persons interested in pursuing employment opportunities with the City of Ottawa will find detailed descriptions of all the positions available, employee benefits and other pertinent information. They will also be prompted through the process of registering and completing an online application. Once the application is complete, it can be changed or updated at any time and the applicant can direct their application to any open positions for which they want to be considered. We encourage applicants to include an email address so we can respond to their application with information about the specific hiring process and schedule. Interested applicants who do not have access to a computer with internet capabilities may use public library computers. We believe this process provides convenience for applicants by being available 24 hours per day/7 days per week.
Current City employees may contact the Human Resources Department at any time to request help in making a health or dental claim, to inquire about any detail of available employee benefits or to learn more about the employee assistance program (EAP). We are also available to help when you need to make changes in your withholding status, to change your beneficiaries, or to answer questions about employee rules and regulations.
