The Seattle Human Services Department (HSD) posts job openings year-round including a wide range of job titles and roles, from entry-level to senior and supervisory positions, such as:

  • Accountant
  • Case Manager
  • Counselor
  • Grants & Contract Specialist
  • Planner
  • Social Services Aide
  • and more...

For each position, please note whether it is Civil Service or Temporary. Some positions are seasonal. And some of our Aging & Disability Services division job openings are based out of our South King County office in Renton.

Always check on the application deadline, as some may be posted publicly for only one week while others may be part of a continuous hiring process or seeking to fill multiple positions with the same job classification. Applications must be submitted online and will not be accepted after the posted deadline. With a continuous process, the sooner you submit an application the more likely it is to be considered.
