Current Job Openings

As of March 1, 2013, the City of Sioux City Human Resources Department no longer distributes paper copies of city employment application forms. Applications will continue to be available electronically on our website at www.sioux-city.org. Potential candidates should print applications from the website, complete, and submit to the Human Resources Office on 2nd Floor of City Hall. Computers are available for public use at the Wilbur Alfs and Morningside Libraries to print applications. Alternatively, candidates can complete the form, save their work as a PDF and submit it using the online submission form found on this site.

This change is being implemented to reduce costs associated with printing and copying applications.
