Hiring Process

Open positions are filled in the Town of Bedford only with the Town Manager's approval.

Posting & in-House Candidates

When the in-house pool of candidates appears to be extremely well-qualified for a particular position, the job opening is posted in-house prior to it being advertised externally.

In cases where current Town employees are competing with outside candidates for a position, the Town employee will have the advantage in situations where both "merit and fitness" are deemed to be equal between the two.


Employment with the Town of Bedford may be contingent upon successfully passing a physical exam, drug screen or other testing, or a combination of these, depending upon the position.
