The Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Initiative is designed to help Virginia companies successfully recruit and retain military veterans. The City of Norfolk has completed a "Vet Ready" assessment and has committed making Veterans at least 15% of its new hires for Fiscal Year 2013.
Norfolk is very proud to be the first municipality in the Commonwealth to attain a Bronze Level certification as it joins the group of 32 certified organizations that have committed to hiring over 3,000 Veterans this year alone.
The City of Norfolk gives a hiring preference to Veterans that matches the Federal Civil Service preferences. There are good jobs available right now and if you are a Veteran or are considering transition from active service in the near future, we encourage you to apply. View the active job postings.
