The Spokane County Human Resources Building has elected to become fragrance-free to maintain a healthy environment and accommodate chemically sensitive staff and visitors. We respectfully request that all visitors to our office refrain from wearing perfumes, colognes, scented lotions, hairsprays, etc. as the use of such products may trigger allergic reactions and health issues.

County Employment Opportunities

Spokane County is currently accepting applications for both civil service and non-civil service positions.

Please note:  for some positions, joining the Union may be a condition of employment pursuant to the exception as noted in RCW 41.56.122(1) and any other rights afforded by law.  Changing bargaining units within the county work force may incur a change in the employee’s benefits.

Spokane County is an “at will” employer.  All positions are considered “at will” or “at the pleasure” of the hiring authority unless specified otherwise in specific labor agreements. Such positions can be terminated with or without cause at any time by the hiring authority. No employee of Spokane County has the authority to make any oral or written agreement altering any “at will” relationship.

Spokane County strives to satisfy all requests for reasonable accommodation from persons with disabilities.  Requests for accommodations should be made in advance and addressed to the Human Resources Director at 477-5750.
