Human Resources

The City of Virginia Beach Human Resources Department's mission is to facilitate the recruitment, retention, and development of a sustainable quality workforce and its alignment with the City's strategy.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Human Resources administers various programs, through traditional and non-traditional means, to enhance the work environment of our most valued resource, our employees. These programs include employee selection, learning and development, compensation and benefits, employee relations, member communications, and occupational health and safety management. Programs and services are provided to a workforce of full-time and part-time employees, who are primarily responsible for providing government services to our citizens.

Due to the current public health situation, Building 18 at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center is closed. Persons requiring personal assistance completing a job application or onboarding materials can call our Careers Office at 757-385-4157 and select Option 9. Our phone is staffed 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday. If the issue cannot be resolved via telephone, an appointment for in-person assistance can be made.
