- How can I find out more information about an open position and whether or not I am qualified?
For each open position, the Town creates a position posting which includes salary or hourly rate of pay, the date and time that the application process ends, a summary of the position, the minimum educational and experience requirements, certifications required, information on the examination process as well as information on how to apply. The detailed job description is also attached to the position posting.
Open positions are posted on the Jobs page as well as in the Human Resources office located in the Annex of the Town Hall building.
- When can I apply for a position with the Town of Bloomfield?
The Town of Bloomfield accepts applications only for open positions. For a complete listing of our current vacancies, please visit the Human Resources page of our website and click on the job posting link. The Human Resources department does not retain resumes and/or applications that are submitted as general applications or for positions that are not currently open.
The position posting contains the closing date and time that the application process ends. The Town does not accept applications that are received after the application process ends.

- How do I apply for a position with the Town of Bloomfield?
Applications for the position of Police Officer are only accepted online at PoliceApp when there is an open position. Notice of an open position will be posted on the Town of Bloomfield website.
Applications for the Leisure Services Department/Summer are available on the Human Resources page of the Town of Bloomfield website or in the Human Resources Department at Town Hall only when the positions are available.
For all other positions, a Town of Bloomfield Employment Application must be completed. Applications can be found on the town website on the Jobs page or picked up at the Human Resources Department in Town Hall Annex, Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm.
All sections of the application need to be completed in full even if a resume is submitted with the application. For example, writing "see resume" in the job description section of the application is not acceptable and may disqualify an applicant from moving forward in the process.
The position posting states whether or not there are any additional documents required to be submitted along with the employment application; for example, references, a cover letter and/or a resume. Read the position posting carefully to ensure all required documents are submitted along with the application. Failure to submit required documents will prevent an applicant from moving forward in the process.
