Why I Work Here

Award-Winning Employee Benefits

In addition to flex-time options, competitive paid-time off accruals for each paycheck, you’ll receive 12 paid holidays annually. We offer 24/7 fitness centers at multiple campus locations. Onsite employee health clinics, that promote our high-value health and wellness programs. We believe in the importance of work/life balance, and that belief is represented exceptionally in our policies and practices. 

Training & Advancement 

At Jefferson County, you are encouraged to show up as your authentic self in order to achieve your goals. Whatever those goals may be, you can participate in leadership classes, attend educational conferences, and engage in industry-leading development courses. Our full-time employees are eligible for up to $2,000.00 annually in tuition reimbursement towards coursework that is relevant to their current position or future position within the county.

Community Impact

Our employees have a passion for what they do, and the positive impact their actions have on our county and its community members. We create a work environment that fosters creative, collaborative and friendly team efforts to deliver results that make a difference.


Via effective sustainability, and a strong sense of environmental responsibility, we have offered our community a stable organization with over a 100-year history. Our operations offer a lifetime of professional growth that can be economically relied upon. While rooted in history, that does not slow down our desire to modernize and innovate the multitude of services Jefferson County provides every day.

Inclusive and Innovative Culture 

A core part of Jefferson County’s Strategic Plan is to provide innovative, equitable and effective services. Here, we understand how an engaging and diverse workforce actively ensures our policy making, service delivery, and distribution of resources account for the different histories, challenges, and needs of the people we serve. Our employee lead councils, affinity groups, equity atlas, and language access plan are just a few examples of how we foster an innovative culture of inclusion and belonging. 

Employee Recognition Programs

Jefferson County recognizes its employees monthly with employee recognition events and local event discounts, like Denver Nugget and Avalanche games. Service awards are distributed annually to thank employees for their dedication to civil service. Employee ‘shout-outs’ are also encouraged on our internal site where peers can recognize one another on their outstanding achievements.
