How to Apply

Applications are required for all employment openings, and must be submitted online.  Resumes and cover letters may be attached to applications; however, they will not be accepted in lieu of a completed application. Applications are only accepted for positions in which the City is actively recruiting. Unsolicited application materials will be discarded.

Due to the volume of applications received we are not able to acknowledge receipt of each one.

All police applicants must possess a current North Carolina Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) Certification, or be currently enrolled in a BLET program to be considered for employment.

A pre-employment drug screen and criminal background check is required of all final candidates. The City of Mebane uses E-Verify for verification of legal employment eligibility status. The City of Mebane is an Equal Opportunity Employer.


The Application Process

Applications are processed in the Human Resources Department then forwarded to the hiring department. If a closing date is listed on the job posting, applications must be received by the Human Resources Department by 11:59 p.m. on that closing date. Due to the volume of applications received we are not able to acknowledge receipt of each one.  

After the application deadline date, the hiring department reviews the applications of qualified candidates and selects applicants to be interviewed.                                                               

The period of time it takes to hire someone can be impacted by several factors; number of applications received, the number of job openings within the hiring department, the workload of the department, holidays, supervisor and department head schedules, and any unexpected events.                                                               
After an offer of employment has been made, the applicant will be required to submit to a pre-employment drug screen, background check, driver’s history, and/or credit check. Unsatisfactory results will require the conditional offer of employment to be withdrawn.   

After the position is filled, all candidates interviewed for the position will receive notification that the selection process is complete.                                                         

Applications are considered active for six (6) months from the application date.
