As an employer, the City of Sonoma strives to provide a working environment that is innovative and flexible.
The city recognizes dedication and hard work, but also encourages employees to retain a work / life balance. The city prides itself on cultivating a family-friendly environment. One example of this is the Alternative Work Schedule program. Employees participate in various schedules which are considered a highly valued benefit by the organization.
The City recruits for full-time and part-time positions on an as-needed basis when vacancies occur. Applications are accepted for available positions only and are only active during the recruitment period for the position to which you apply. New applications are required for future positions you may be interested in. Learn more about City employment at our Human Resources page.
