The city of Moss Point offers full time job opportunities

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX)--If you're interested in repairing the streets in Moss Point or maybe ridding them of crime, there's a job waiting for you.

"Public works department, police department, and fire department have some vacancies, and currently there are some administrative positions," Mayor Xavier Bishop said.

Mayor Xavier Bishop says the city has more than 20 available jobs and they pay well too.

"All our employees got approximately four percent raise over the last year, and the fire department the police department got even more than that. We are very competitive from the salary stand point. I think there few other communities on the coast that offer those same opportunities we do," Bishop said.

It's an opportunity Nicole Jacobs couldn't pass up; she's the new director of Human Resources. Jacobs says it took her six months to find work.

"These are tough economic times," Jacobs said.

Jacobs believes the shaky job market will lead more people look at Moss Point. This month, she received dozens of employment applications. Once she sorts through the large stack of applications, the city will select the best and brightest workers.

"We are here to do a service to our citizens so when are staffed it gives us the opportunity to give great customer service," Jacobs said.

Jacobs wants to fill the positions as soon as possible because the city is understaffed.

Mayor Bishop says the jobs are included in Moss Point's 2008 budget.
