One of the themes of my writings has been the lack of communication by the Township. While their website does contain a lot of information, who has time to click on each category to find the latest postings and news every day? Not even I will check every day. Here are two job openings available at the Township. Act quickly and good luck with the application. Merry Christmas.
FIREFIGHTER / PARAMEDIC
On the 16th of December I posted a blog containing contract information by discovering a job posting on the Township website. The Township is taking applications for the position of firefighter/paramedic until March 1, 2012.
The Bloomfield Township Fire Department is now accepting applications for its entry-level Firefighter/Paramedic eligibility list. Firefighter duties include fire suppression, emergency medical response, hazardous materials, confined space, public education and other related duties.Do NOT mail, fax or email applications. They will NOT be accepted. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Return completed applications, with ALL required documents, in person to:
Bloomfield Township Central Fire Station
1155 Exeter Rd., Bloomfield Twp., MI 48302
During Business Hours Only
FULL-TIME MASTER MECHANIC
Today, I discovered another job posting, but this application must be submitted by January 12, 2012. I certainly hope this job position is posted in all the important newspapers and online job search sites in the Detroit area. Beware of the 3 day work week holiday schedule for Township employees, applicants must plan wisely to actually find the Township open to get the application form and to also submit it on time. Late applications are not accepted. The application MAY be online, but there MAY be a special application for this particular job. Please check with the Township.
