Sherburne County uses an internet based online job application process. On your first visit to the website you will need to establish an account and create a user ID and password. You will create a master application that you can review and edit each time you apply for a job.
Any computer with internet access should be able to connect to our
website. Computers are available for public use at any public library and there are also two computer kiosks available in the lobby of the Sherburne County Government Center exclusively for the use of job applicants.
If it is not possible for you to apply online, you may contact human resources using the information to the left, for a paper application which will then be input into the online process for you.
Any paper applications must be completed and received in the HR office by 4:30 pm on the posted closing date for the recruitment. Sherburne County is not responsible for failure of the post office or other carrier to deliver by the closing date and late applications will not be accepted.
You can log into your application account at any time to check on your application status using your user ID and password. Click on application status to view the status of any submitted applications.
You may call Sherburne County Human Resources or stop in our office at the Sherburne County Government Center. The lobby kiosk computers do have applicant instruction cards in the kiosks.
Click on Add Education or Add Work Experience after each series of input. List your education and work experience in chronological order, starting with the most recent. After each entry, click Save and View Application.
If your application has already been submitted for a current posting, call human resources at 763-765-3001 or email to provide the changes for that application. You can change your master application, build a new application, or see the status of submitted applications by using your ID and password to login.

Your application will be carefully reviewed, along with any other materials required on the job posting, to determine whether you meet these qualifications. Therefore, it is very important that everything about your qualifications, your education and experience, licenses, certificates and special skills be included. If all the information is not provided, you may be considered unqualified, or less qualified than other applicants.

Sherburne County's objective is to hire the best person for the job and vacancies are very competitive. In most cases, numerous qualified people have applied for the same position. If you are not successful in securing a job offer for a particular vacancy we encourage you to check our job openings frequently (or complete job interest card) and apply again if you feel you are qualified.
You do not need to live in Sherburne County to apply or be hired for a job. Some positions, however, do have a response time requirement (for example; patrol deputy).
Testing and assessment varies for each position. Testing is usually scheduled during normal business hours and may consist of any of the following: written exams, skills tests, oral exam, computer skills testing, physical fitness testing, psychological exam, writing samples, drug testing, and other job-related testing procedures. Some tests (such as the drug test) are conducted only after a conditional offer of employment is made. Background and reference checks will be conducted on all finalists. Some positions also require a criminal history check.
Should you have a qualified disability that would prevent you from
testing for a position under standard conditions, please contact the
human resources department at 763-765-3001 or email as soon as you are notified of the test so that every reasonable accommodation
can be made.
You must contact us for accommodation in advance of the test date as it is difficult or impossible to make accommodations without prior arrangement.

experience and/or recruitment competitiveness.
