Human Resources​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Who We Are

We are a dedicated staff that strives to meet or exceed our customer's needs, whether they are citizens or other city employees. We believe in the fair treatment of everyone we work with. Our focus on driving success is based on strong teamwork and communication. 

Thornton is committed to building a diverse, inclusive, and equitable organizational culture. Thornton is a diverse community, and both the community and the city workforce are getting more diverse. We serve an increasingly varied customer base with different and complex needs, and this requires an organizational culture where all people are seen, understood, and have an equal opportunity to fulfill their potential. When looking toward the future of the organization and building an accepting organizational culture, the people who best understand our needs are our employees.  

City Employment

Thornton is a full service city providing a variety of employment opportunities. Police, fire, infrastructure, legal, parks & recreation, and city planning are just some of the areas that offer rewarding, challenging employment. Thornton works hard to ensure that our positions offer competitive salaries and benefits. Come join our team and help make our community a better place to live!


Thornton offers employees an outstanding benefits package.
