Human Resources

The Human Resources Department serves as a hub for all employee services, activities, and programs. This department also constitutes the foundation for the City's ability to ensure fair and equitable treatment for all of its employees in every term, benefit, privilege, and condition of employment.

The City of Fort Myers has implemented a new online hiring system called NEOGOV!  This system allows internal and external applicants to create a user account, apply for positions online, and check the status of their candidacy.

As with any new system, there is a need to adjust the existing processes.  Please be sure to make note of the following procedural changes for internal candidates:

  • To view a list of current vacancies available to both internal and external candidates, please go to "Employment Opportunities". If you would like to view opportunities that are available to internal candidates only, please click on the “Promotional Opportunities” link.
  • If you are interested in applying for a vacant position, you must complete an online application.  Internal candidates will no longer use a “Bid for Transfer” form.  We suggest you familiarize yourself with the online application process by reading the “Online Application Guide”.  This guide is available when you click on “Apply” from any vacant position.  The online application process allows you the opportunity to attach electronic documents (i.e. resume, certifications) that you would like the hiring department to take into consideration when reviewing your application.
  • Once you create your application in the online hiring system, you have the ability to check the status of your application, update information, and apply for other positions of interest as they become available.

Please feel free to contact Human Resources at (239) 321-7066 should you have any questions or need assistance.
