Community jobs in Birmingham can offer a rewarding career

Community jobs in Birmingham can offer more than just a paycheck. Working for your local community can be very rewarding. Knowing that what you are doing each day enriches the lives of your hometown can provide a lot of satisfaction. Even if you don’t work in the town you live in, you know that you are helping to keep a community running smoothly.

Types of Community Jobs

Community jobs, like those in Birmingham, are the same as they are in the private sector for the most part - unless you fill the office of mayor or other city official. Even with that, you could look at the mayor as being the CEO of a regular business. Jobs working for the community include, secretaries, sales executives, software testers, support workers, electricians, plumbers, cleaners, librarians, teachers, child care workers, police officers, firefighters, and the list goes on. They also include full and part time, permanent and temp jobs in Birmingham.

Most communities have a website and by going directly to the Birmingham city council website and clicking on the ‘Council Jobs’ link you’ll find a list of current openings. Other options are to search recruitment agencies for community jobs. Networx Recruitment and publicjobsdirect.com often have listings of job openings for community-based careers.
