The county is looking to fill over 100 positions to recover from pandemic-related staffing shortages. Erie County government staff shared qualities they are looking for in potential candidates.

“People that can communicate well, that really have a good work ethic, that are quick studies, quick learners and very versatile. We want diverse candidates. We want people that apply that are from all different walks of like, and wherever they are in their lives or their background it doesn’t really matter because we’re casting a wide net,” said Ann Villella, Director of Human Resources, Erie County government.
