The City of Monterey is currently recruiting for a full-time Associate Planner in the Community Development Department.

The department includes a diverse team of professionals in planning, project management, environmental compliance, housing, property management, historic preservation, sustainability, and architectural disciplines serving five (5) individual boards/commissions including the City Council. The position offers a unique opportunity for an individual interested in a variety of topics including progressive mixed-use redevelopment in a culturally-significant community.
A limited number of applicants who clearly show that they most closely meet the needs of this position in terms of training, experience, education, and other job-related characteristics will be accepted to participate in the selection process. This process will include evaluation and initial screening of the standard on-line City application to determine which candidates progress to the next phase of the recruitment process. The subsequent selection process may include a written test/written exercise, performance exercise, panel interview, and a final departmental interview. As a condition of employment, the selected candidate may be required to successfully pass a physical exam including a drug screen, a Livescan fingerprint background check, and a reference check. The Human Resources Department reserves the right to make changes to components of the examination process.
Candidates who successfully complete all phases of this recruitment process will be placed on an eligibility list. The eligibility list is active for 12-months and may be used to fill additional positions including lower-level positions determined to have similar duties and requirements.
