The success of an organization is firmly rooted in the people it employs. As the most functionally diverse organization in southwest Missouri, the City of Springfield is committed to valuing and investing in its employees through enhanced opportunities for professional development, paying competitive salaries, sharing of knowledge and information, and creating a culture of connectivity, while being dedicated to providing quality service to an ever-changing community. The City is also committed to hiring and retaining highly qualified individuals who recognize the value of public service and the resulting contribution to our community. This commitment will result in our organization becoming the most-desired place to work in our region.
