Human Resources


On January 4, 2017, the First Judicial District of Pennsylvania introduced a new employment application system, Cyber Recruiter. It provides access to employment opportunities within the District. After initially applying for a position, an account will be created for our current employees as well as candidates seeking employment. This will allow individuals to access and edit their information, track the history of positions they applied for, as well as apply for future career opportunities. When returning to the site, simply sign in using your account information and you will be able to view your application as well as current openings. This new system provides potential applicants with a more integral and convenient application process.

Cyber Recruiter may be accessed HERE, at or at the Human Resources Office by way of one of five kiosks that are located in the reception area of the Human Resources Department located in Room 668 of City Hall.

The First Judicial District of Pennsylvania Office of Human Resources serves the District through the management of positions; policy review, maintenance, and the enforcement; testing; training; and administration of employee compensation and benefits for the entire FJD personnel compliment. In addition, since Human Resources also has a great deal of contact with the public, the importance of conveying a positive image of the FJD while building and maintaining public trust and confidence continues to remain a priority of this Department.
