We're looking for an Emergency Services Coordinator, a Parking Services Manager, an Employee & Labor Relations Analyst, and others who reflect a portion of the breadth of services we provide to the Berkeley community.
As an Emergency Services Coordinator, you’d help build Berkeley’s resilience to disasters by helping develop and manage our Emergency Operations Center, and you would play a pivotal role in various Office of Emergency Services initiatives.

Help serve an engaged, vibrant community
The City of Berkeley is distinguished by its diversity, community engagement, and activism. Home to the University of California’s flagship campus, Berkeley’s population is highly educated, diverse, and engaged. The City lies on the east shore of the San Francisco Bay and is sheltered by rolling hills on its eastern border. Berkeley spans 10 square miles with 118,000 residents.
Our climate is mild year-round, with cool summers. An outdoor focus is demonstrated with acres of open space, parks, and an abundance of bike lanes on City streets. Public transportation is well developed and reliable, with three Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations in Berkeley. All of these factors translate to an outstanding quality of life for Berkeley residents, with a bounty of outdoor, recreational, and cultural activities.
The City of Berkeley lies in Alameda County and operates under a Council-Manager form of government. The City is divided into eight districts, that each elect one representative to the City Council. The eight-member City Council serves four-year terms, and a mayor is elected at large – also on a four-year term.
The City Council appoints a City Manager, who serves as the Chief Executive of the City. Berkeley provides a comprehensive range of municipal services to its population, many of which are not typically provided by cities.
The City of Berkeley’s Health, Housing and Community Services Department provides public health, mental health, and environmental health services. The City also provides its own residential and commercial solid waste collection, recycling, and disposal service. The City’s Parks, Recreation, and Waterfront Department offers a number of summer camps and operates a 1,000-berth marina.
