Human Resources

The Human Resources Department is responsible for the recruitment and hire of all personnel who deliver a full range of services to the community. Adrian has a staff of 131 regular full-time employees as well as part-time and seasonal employees. Full-time employees receive a comprehensive benefit package, including health insurance, dental, defined benefit retirement benefits, vacation, sick leave, holidays, life insurance, 457 Deferred Compensation, flexible medical and dependent care accounts and retiree health savings plans.

In addition to the hiring of staff, the Human Resources Department is responsible for collective bargaining and contract administration for the City’s five bargaining units. These unions include TPOAM, APEA, Police Officers Labor Council (POLC), Police Officers Association of Michigan (POAM), and the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF).

Police Officers and Firefighters are selected from a list of eligible applicants who have successfully passed a written and oral exam. Testing is conducted when a vacancy occurs with no active eligibility list.

Resumes for all other full-time positions are welcome when a vacancy occurs and public notice is published in the local newspaper and our website.

Applications for seasonal positions are generally accepted after January 1 for work beginning April 1 through October 31.

The City of Adrian is an equal opportunity employer and shall consider all qualified applicants for all positions without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, height, weight, marital status, veteran status, disability, or any other protected category. We provide reasonable accommodation for qualified individuals with a disability, if requested.
