Equity in Hiring

Employment Program for People with Disabilities
The City of Richmond is an equal opportunity employer who believes in a diverse and inclusive workplace that reflects our community. As such, the City offers a program that specifically hires individuals with disabilities. The process of applying and competing for employment is often a barrier for individuals with disabilities. Because of this, the City’s Human Resources (HR) department has modified its recruiting and hiring practices.

Through HR, the City partners with local community organizations with specialized employment services to hire and place individuals with disabilities into roles throughout the organization (placement opportunities are based on availability and resources). The goal is to find meaningful work for individuals and customize their employment around both the individual’s strengths and capabilities with the operational needs of a work area. Some processes and duties are modified for the individual. The result is an inclusive and supportive work environment.

If you have any questions or would like to participate in this program, please contact the City of Richmond Human Resources department at 

Consideration for Internal Candidates
Our commitment to staff development often results in the promotion of internal applicants to available positions. Where external applicants are sought, the vacancy is posted on this website under Current Postings.

Each job posting outlines the specific qualifications, skills and abilities required for the position. All who are qualified are encouraged to apply. Essential qualifications may include specific certifications and/or licences. Applicants are required to provide proof of these certifications and/or licences during the recruitment and selection process.
