About Us

Our Purpose

The Human Resources (HR) Department provides these major services in their role of making the County of Moore a premier community in which to live, work, and raise a family:
  • Manages job recruitment, selection and promotion of county employees
  • Develops and oversees employee benefits and wellness programs
  • Develops and promotes appropriate personnel policies and enforces those policies
  • Fosters a positive work environment and effective employee-employer relations
  • Manages the county’s pay-for-performance system
  • Promotes employee career development and job training
  • Provides a county government orientation for new employees
  • Provides guidance on disciplinary actions

Core Functions

  • The Hiring Process:  Everything from decisions about what qualifications are required to work for the County to the array of forms, interviews, tests, reference checks and other tools used in the hiring process.
  • Classification:  Jobs titles, descriptions, pay ranges, qualifications, job performance standards and expectations and so forth. HR helps decide which classifications are needed, develops the description of the classification and ensures that individual positions are assigned to the correct classification.
  • Compensation:  How much should the County compensate employees to remain competitive within the workforce? HR uses a blend of market surveys and job analysis techniques to develop the County's salary schedules and systems.
  • Benefits:  HR develops and manages the County's fringe benefit programs -- health insurance, dental insurance, disability insurance, vacation leave, sick leave, holiday leave and more.
  • Employee Relations:   The County's HR Director can assist/direct employees who feel they have a grievance.
  • Legal Compliance:   HR staff are expected to be experts in a wide range of employment and labor laws: wage and hour laws, collective bargaining, equal opportunity, affirmative action, discrimination, sexual harassment, disabilities, medical claims, workers compensation benefits and many, many more. They work with the County Manager, Department Directors, County Attorney's and County Employees to ensure the County's decisions and actions are within established legal boundaries and represent the County in administrative claims and appeals.
  • Performance Management:   HR develops policies and systems such as performance appraisals centered around the objective of skillfully evaluating and managing employee performance.

  • Accepted complete applications and all supplemental materials submitted become the property of the County of Moore and cannot be returned or copied.
  • The application is designed to assist the hiring department in evaluating your qualifications. Please read the job announcement carefully to be sure your background at least meets the minimum requirements of the position.
  • Incomplete applications will not be referred to the hiring departments. Answer all questions and complete all sections of the application form. You must give complete information on the application (“See Resume” is not acceptable). List separately each job held and your duties for each position if you held more than one position for the same employer. Use the application continuation sheet to provide any additional work experience  if necessary.
  • Resumes are welcome as a supplement to the application but will not be accepted in lieu of the application. Work history listed on the resume must also be listed on the employment application to be considered in the application screening process to determine an applicant's qualifications for an advertised position.  ONLY work history listed on the employment application will be considered. Make sure you submit any additional documentation listed as required in the job announcement. Additional paperwork and/or documentation may be required during the interview or during the hiring process.
  • Check for accuracy and electronically sign and date your application.
  • When completing the application, please make sure you complete the section for equal opportunity information. This section is for statistical information reporting and will not be forwarded to the hiring department.
  • The County of Moore is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. All applicants for job openings are considered for employment without regard to race, color, sex, religion, disability, national origin, or age as provided by law.
  • In compliance with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, the County of Moore hires only those individuals who are United States citizens or aliens lawfully authorized to work in the United States. All new employees will be required to complete a verification form and provide documentation of employment eligibility and identity (E-Verify Process).
  • All applicants tentatively selected for any position will be required to submit to a background check, pre-employment physical, and drug screen prior to appointment. Unsatisfactory results from such testing will result in the conditional offer of employment being withdrawn.


County of Moore Human Resources Department does not. Register of Deeds office, Clerk of Court's office, and the Airport advertise their own vacancies and process their own employment applications. If you are interested in a position with any of these offices, you will need to contact them directly.

Your application will be logged into our database and compiled into an application packet along with all the other applications for that position to be viewed by the hiring managers for the position. Nothing else will happen to your application until after the closeout date. The applications are evaluated for requirements stated in the job announcement. Applicants who do not possess the essential license, certificates, skills, education, or experience are eliminated from the process. From this group, the most qualified applicants will be contacted by the hiring authority for an interview.

The status of all advertised positions will be available on this website under Status of Advertised Positions. This information is also available on the jobline at (910) 947-6314. 

The period of time it takes to hire someone can be impacted by several factors; the number of applications received, the number of job openings within the department, the workload of the department doing the hiring process, holiday breaks, supervisor and department head schedules, and any unexpected events.

If you are still interested in the position, another application must be re-submitted through the online application portal under the new job posting. 

The County of Moore Human Resources Department sends all job listings to the Employment Security Commission. They in turn post our openings on their database and website as a courtesy. We have no control over the information they make available to their clients or how long or when it is posted to their website. If there is a discrepancy between the information provided to you by the Department of Commerce and the County of Moore regarding one of our job announcements, please contact our office at 910-947-6362 for clarification.

New jobs are posted as they are approved and are advertised a minimum of 10 business days.

Moore County participates in the E-Verify program administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in partnership with the Social Security Administration. For more information, view the E-Verify participation and Right-to-Work posters available in English and Spanish.
