- Merit Plan Positions:
When a vacancy occurs, or knowledge of a vacancy is known, generally the position is
posted internally and externally. It is the intent of the City of Claremont to fill vacancies with the
most qualified candidate. It is also the intent of the City to promote from within if the employee is
determined to be qualified for the position in which he/she is applying for. Usually job openings
are advertised in the local newspapers as well as listed on our website (link). In all cases the
City Manager has the final approval in filling all vacancies.
- Union positions have specific guidelines that must be adhered to when a vacancy occurs. The governing contract
is referred to in each collective bargaining unit prior to each and every job posting. Generally, the union
in which the vacancy occurs along with other collective bargaining units within the City has the first
opportunity in which to apply for the vacant position. If an internal candidate is not hired, it is posted externally.
The City of Claremont only accepts applications and/or resumes for current jobs that are posted due to the strict
guidelines of the collective bargaining units. It is the policy of the City of Claremont to maintain all applications
and resumes submitted for each job posting for three years. If the same position reopens within that time, the City
reviews applications and resumes that are on file. The City may also elect to advertise simultaneously.
All applications and resumes are submitted to the Human Resources Coordinator located in City Hall. It is the
Human Resources Coordinator's responsibility to coordinate the hiring processes and procedures for each City department.
It is the intent of the City of Claremont to insure compliance with the requirements of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
