Q: Can I apply for a position any time I wish?
A: The City of Margate only accepts applications for open positions; that is, any position which has been advertised and for which we are actively recruiting. A completed employment application is required for any open position. You may attach a resume to your completed employment application; however, it will be reviewed for clarification purposes only. General applications or resumes are not accepted or kept on file unless a position is open. Applications must be received in the Human Resources Department by 6:00 p.m. on the posted closing date.

Q: How will I know what jobs I am qualified for and when to apply?
A: Whenever a position becomes available, the Human Resources Department will create an Employment Opportunity posting. This posting will contain a brief job description, statement of minimum educational and experience requirements, and will include a description of any special qualifications which may be required. Postings will be available for review in the Human Resources Department at City Hall and on the City's website (www.margatefl.com). Employment applications must be received in the Human Resources Department by 6:00 p.m. on the posted closing date. Resumes cannot be substituted for this requirement, but may accompany a completed employment application.
Q: How do I file my application?
A: In order to ensure your application receives the attention it deserves, you will need to submit a separate application for each open position for which you wish to be considered. It is very important that you fill out the application completely, even if you attach a resume. Do not state “see resume” when asked to describe your responsibilities, experience, and employment dates. Your qualifications will be evaluated on the basis of information you provide on the application itself. Your resume will be reviewed for clarification purposes only. If you need more space to describe additional work experience relevant to the position, continue on a separate sheet of paper utilizing the same format.
Q: If I've previously completed an application, will I automatically be considered for other positions?
A: No, a separate application form is required for each open position for which you are interested.
Q: Does the City of Margate have any prerequisites to employment other than the essential functions and qualifications described by the job positing and job description?
A: Yes. After the hiring authority selects the top candidate for a position, the Human Resources Department will conduct a background investigation which will include employment, driving history (for those positions requiring driving), criminal investigation, and other reports which may include information regarding character, work habits, performance and experience of past employment from previous employers. Certain positions require skill set testing. Following a job offer, candidates will also be required to successfully complete a Computer Voice Stress Analysis (CVSA), pre-employment physical, and drug screening.
Q: Can I apply for an open position in person?
A: We accept applications during regular business hours, which are 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, excluding holidays. The Human Resources Department is located on the first floor of City Hall located at 5790 Margate Blvd., Margate FL 33063.
Q: How can I call the Human Resources Department to answer questions?
A: Please call us at (954) 972-6454 between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, excluding holidays.
