What You Can Expect from the Clerk

The Clerk is firmly committed to ensuring equal employment opportunities and, pursuant to state and federal law, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender, age, disability/handicap, pregnancy, marital status, citizenship, or genetic information (“Protected Classes”). The Clerk believes that each employee should be able to work in an environment free from discrimination. Any form of harassment based on Protected Classes is strictly prohibited.

The Clerk and his management team will:

(1) Recruit, hire, train, and promote for all job classifications without regard to Protected Classes

(2) Make employment and promotion decisions based solely on an individual's qualifications for the position available.

Ensure that all other personnel actions and programs including, but not limited to, compensation, benefits, promotions, demotions, transfers, layoffs, terminations, training, education, and social and recreational programs will be administered without regard to Protected Classes.

Minimum Requirements

The following minimum requirements must be met for employment consideration:

• Authorized to work in the United States
• Possess a high school diploma and/or GED

Application Instructions

To apply for a position with the Clerk's Office, please download a copy of the EMPLOYMENT APPLICATION (“Application”) and save the file to your computer or phone. Open the saved file and complete the Application. You must save your completed Application to your computer or phone before submitting.

After saving your completed Application, please email a copy to employment@marioncountyclerk.org with the subject line “EMPLOYMENT APPLICATION.”

Consideration of Your Application Package

Applications will be reviewed by the Clerk's personnel staff (“Employment Team”) to ensure that your Application has been fully completed and that you meet the minimum requirements outlined above. If you are selected for an in-person interview, you will be scheduled to complete the computer skills assessment and interview with a team selected by the Clerk. You must successfully meet the minimum requirements of the position, as shown in the job description, and the computer skills assessment, before you can proceed to the next step in the review process. If you are not selected for an interview, your Application Package will be kept on file in the Clerk’s Office for sixty (60) days, after which you will need to reapply for any then-open positions.

When considering your Application Package, the Employment Team will review your references and previous employers and use the information that you provided to obtain your criminal and civil history files through the Florida Comprehensive Case Information System. All information will be solicited in accordance with federal guidelines and laws (EEOC, ADA, etc.).

The Clerk reserves the right to consider a variety of factors when determining whether to hire an Applicant, including but not limited to:

• The Applicant’s qualifications,
• The requirements of the position in question, and
• The needs of the Clerk’s Office.

The Clerk also reserves the right to reject an Application Package for the following reasons:

(1) The Applicant has been convicted of a felony or of a first-degree misdemeanor directly relating to the position sought.
(2) The Applicant has made false statements in the Application Package.

NOTE: Rejection of an Applicant for reasons (1) or (2) above will depend on the specific facts of the infraction, the nature of the infraction, its relevance to employment, the passage of time since the infraction occurred, as well as any evidence of rehabilitation (or other mitigating factors).

Preference in hiring for positions that are not exempt from s. 295.07, Florida Statutes, will be given to Veterans' Preference-eligible applicants.

Opportunities for Redress

Any Applicant who feels that he or she has been discriminated against, in any manner, during the employment application process has the right to file a complaint (“Complaint”) with the Clerk’s Office.

All such Complaints will be promptly investigated and, if deemed valid, corrective action will be taken.

The Clerk will ensure that no adverse action will be taken against a prospective employee because he or she filed a complaint, testified, assisted, or participated in any manner in any investigation, proceeding, or hearing associated with a Complaint.
