How do I apply?
All applicants must submit a City of Manhattan Beach Employment Application. The application must be completed in full including the record waiver. We will not accept a resume in lieu of an application unless noted on the job announcement. We do not accept facsimiles, photocopies, electronic mail, final filing date postmarks, or emailed applications. The employment application must be received by the Human Resources Office before final filing date and time as stated on the job announcement. For some positions, there may be a supplemental application required in addition to the city employment application.
Pursuant to Government Code 12952, the City of Manhattan Beach does not request conviction information or proof of safe driving record at time of application submission, unless criminal conviction background is required by law or exempt from Government Code 12952.
Your application must include at least ten years of employment history (assuming you have been employed for ten years) and you must explain any gaps in employment (i.e. unemployed, school, military, etc.). You must include your work experience for each position listed on the City application form. Entering “see resume” for your work experience on the City application form is not acceptable and your application may be rejected. You must also include the months and years for each period listed, salary information for each job, your reason for leaving each job and the names, address and phone numbers of present and past supervisors or managers. Your application may be rejected if incomplete or if you fail to provide this information.
Applicants may apply online, in-person or by mail addressed to:
Attn: Human Resources Department
City of Manhattan Beach
1400 Highland Avenue
Manhattan Beach, CA 90266
You must specify on your application the position for which you are applying along with the exam number, which you can find on the job announcement.
