Welcome to Hillsborough County Clerk of Court & Comptroller's Office Careers.

Your opportunity to make a difference and join our team begins here! To be considered for Clerk jobs, you must have a profile set up in our jobs portal [external link], then locate and apply for positions you are interested in.

The jobs portal process:

  1. Pre-screening: At the time of the application, applicants are required to answer questions regarding their ability to meet the minimum qualifications of the position. Applicants that do not meet minimum requirements are automatically screened and do not advance to the rating step.
  2. Rating and testing: Candidate education, experience and responses to supplemental questions are evaluated and scored by subject matter experts. Testing may be required for certain positions, then a final average rating is given to candidates. Candidates with the highest ratings are referred to the hiring manager for possible selection interview.
  3. Selection interview: The hiring manager conducts selection interviews and determines if an offer will be extended to any of the candidates.
  4. Background and offer: A background investigation is conducted on offer candidates and, if successfully passed, an offer is extended. Once the offer has been accepted by the candidate, the on-boarding process begins.
