How will I know what jobs I am qualified for and when to apply?

There are several ways you can stay on top of available positions. We recommend that you create a profile in our online employment application program, at The easy-to-use system allows you to review job descriptions and requirements, see a current list of jobs, apply for a position and track the application process. If you are interested in a job that is not currently open, you can also complete an online interest card and you will be notified by email. Additionally, when a position becomes available, the City of Brea Human Resources division issues an announcement for the position, known as a “Career Opportunity Bulletin.” The bulletin contains the salary range, information on the position, the application and selection process, examples of duties and essential qualifications, including education, experience and applicable licenses and certificates. You may visit the Human Resources division to review the current bulletins. For certain positions, the City of Brea may also advertise available positions in local newspapers or industry trade publications.
