Human Resources

The City of Portland has 117 full-time employees and 98 part-time employees. We serve the citizens of Portland to the best of our abilities--and work to provide them with outstanding service in a professional, effective, and efficient manner. 

Our standards are high. There is a place on our team only for those who share our commitment to service and excellence. The employment process is designed to identify and evaluate applicants on the essential competencies necessary to perform at a high level in their prospective position, and their commitment to serving the Portland community. We accept applications only when a vacancy occurs.

The Human Resources Department ensures compliance with employment laws and regulations, and assists with payroll, insurance and disability benefits, and workers compensation.
