Thank you for your interest in employment with the Town of Carrboro. Before completing your application, please read and follow these instructions:

  1. The town accepts employment applications only for positions that we are actively recruiting. If you are interested in a position that is not on the Employment Opportunities List, do not complete an employment application. Instead, fill out an Application Interest Card so that we can notify you in the event the position becomes open within the next six months. Interest cards are available in the Personnel Department.
  2. Be sure to indicate on the application the specific position for which you are applying. If you want to apply for more than one position, you must submit a separate application for each position.
  3. A personal resume may not be substituted for the employment application. A resume may be attached as a supplement; however, all sections of the employment application must be completed.
  4. All applicants are required to complete the Applicant Information Form. This form seeks data, which the federal government requires of the town. The form specifies that the information obtained will be kept separate from the employment application and will not be used in any way during the selection process. The form is detached from the application prior to screening.
  5. Applications will not be accepted for consideration of the position if they are not completed, signed, and dated, or if the application is submitted after the closing date. An application that is returned by mail must be postmarked by midnight on the date that the position closes.
  6. After the application closing date, applications will be reviewed and a small number of applicants will be selected for interview. Applicants will be notified when they are no longer being considered for the position, or when the position has been filled.
  7. Applications, resumes, transcripts, letters of reference and other information submitted will become the property of the town and will not be returned.
    Please call the Personnel Department at (919) 918-7320 if you have further questions.
The Town of Carrboro is firmly committed to the policy of providing equal employment opportunities to all people without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, handicap, sexual orientation or any other characteristic unrelated to job performance.
