The City of Winter Park hires only United States citizens and lawfully authorized alien workers. All selected applicants are required to complete Section 1 of federal Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification) and to provide identification and either proof of United States citizenship or proof of authorization to work in the United States.

In addition, we use E-Verify as part of the I-9 process to verify the work eligibility of all new hires. E-Verify is an Internet-based system that compares information from an employee’s Form I-9 to data from U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records.

The official U.S. E-Verify participation posters for current and prospective employees of their legal rights and protections are available in English or Español.

Veterans Preference

Preference will be provided to qualified veterans and/or their dependents who meet the eligibility requirements set forth by Florida Statute. To be considered for preference, you must indicate on your application and submit a DD 214 form and any service-connected disability documentation (if applicable) for each application submitted prior to the job closing date.
