The County of Santa Clara - Creating a Diverse Workforce

The County of Santa Clara provides the services that hold the fabric of our society together.  While cities in California primarily exist to protect property, counties exist to protect people and the community in which they live.
The approximately 20,000 County employees provide excellent medical services, public health protection, behavioral health care, assurance that food is healthy and available, environmental protection, child and adult protection services, family reunification, assistance to those in need, homelessness prevention and treatment, park services, libraries, emergency response to disasters, protection of minority communities and those under threat, access to a fair criminal justice system, and scores of other services.

Many of those services are expected by our residents and often are taken for granted.  However, they require a lot of work from very committed employees. We ask our employees to keep the needs of their clients as their highest priority at work.  In turn, our employees have the opportunity to work for an employer that provides the support and direction needed to do so in an innovative, dynamic and compassionate work environment.
