What if I have heard of an opening but do not see it posted anywhere?
Opportunities for employment typically occur when new jobs are created or an existing position becomes vacant. Potential applicants may hear of a position that is vacant but do not see it posted as open for application. The reason for this is that most of the positions within the City of Bristol are unionized. Several of our union contracts require that we post positions internally for existing employees prior to considering outside candidates. If no internal candidates are interested in the position or are unsuccessful in the selection process, the position then goes to an external recruitment that is open to the public.
