Human Resources is responsible to administer and communicate sound policies, rules, and practices that treat applicants and employees equally and fairly while maintaining compliance with employment  laws, Board of County Commissioner directives, and collective bargaining agreements.  This is accomplished by creating and implementing fair benefit and compensation programs and providing resources to support employee health and safety, always respecting the confidentiality of our employees.  

Our department:

  • Recruits qualified applicants for county positions.
  • Maintains county compensation and classification program. 
  • Provides health and wellness benefits, employee training, orientation, retirement counseling, safety programs, employee and labor relations, and service recognition.


As an Equal Opportunity Employer, Somerset County is a great place to work offering a positive work environment, competitive salary and benefits, and opportunities for personal growth and development.   The Human Resources Division recruits and retains a highly qualified, diverse staff, facilitating positive employee relations and provides training to enhance employee skills, performance, and job satisfaction. 

Effective September 1, 2011, all employees of state and local government must reside in the State of New Jersey, unless exempted under law. The County of Somerset is a drug and alcohol free workplace.
