Hiring Procedures

How to Apply

Prospective applicants must utilize the City of North Miami's online application process powered by NEOGOV. The automated application allows applicants to apply for City employment during the recruitment period. The applicant's profile and application will be created and stored in the secured system. 

First-Time Applicants

If this is the first time you are using the City of North Miami's online application system, you will need to create an account and select a username and password. You must have an email address when setting up an account. Do not share or allow access to your account with anyone.

Creating Your Employment Application

After your account has been established, proceed to Job Opportunities, click on the recruitment of interest, and then click on Apply. Once your online application is completed, it will be stored in the secure system and can be used to apply for future job openings within the City of North Miami or any other agency using NEOGOV and Government Jobs.

Application forms must be completed in their entirety. Applicants must have all the minimum qualifications and requirements listed in the job announcement for the position. All statements made on the application are subject to verification. Incorrect, incomplete, or false statements or information are cause for disqualification or discharge at any time. Copies of documents verifying education, driver's license, and other licenses or certifications required by the job announcement must be presented with the application.

The City of North Miami only accepts applications for those positions currently announced (see our Job Listings). Unsolicited applications will not be processed. Resumes are not accepted in lieu of an application. Resumes may be submitted with the application. However, applications indicating "See Resume" for any response on the application will be considered incomplete. Incomplete applications and applications received after the closing date indicated in the job announcement will not be processed.

In accordance with the Florida Statute 295, the City of North Miami gives preference in employment to qualified veterans and spouses of veterans. Candidates eligible for Veteran's Preference must submit the City's Veteran's Preference Form (PDF) and proof of eligibility (DD214) at the time of application. Veteran's disability proof must be dated within the past 12 months. If proof is not provided, the applicant will not be eligible for preference.

Candidates living within the City of North Miami may claim Resident Preference points. In order to be eligible, proof of residence (driver's license, lease, or utility bill showing the applicant's name and Present Address indicated on the application) must be provided at the time of application. If proof is not provided at the time of application, the applicant will not be eligible for preference points. All addresses are verified as to whether they fall within North Miami city limits.
