Whether you’re seeking your first job or are a seasoned professional, we invite you to explore opportunities at the City of Bella Vista.

Our city is nestled among an abundance of towering trees and rolling hills. We boast nearly 100 miles of biking/walking trails that can be enjoyed year-round, plus an array of other outdoor activities that fuel our residents’ active lifestyles and promote a high quality of life. Our employees are friendly, committed to serving our community, and dedicated to pursuing excellence in all we do. The community is dedicated and welcoming to those who serve, as well.

If you want to join an amazing team, check out our current openings – perhaps there’s an opportunity just right for you.


FIRE CAREERSFD trail controlled burn
There is no greater calling than the one to serve others. If you are an individual who is looking to work in the service of a grateful community and can meet the challenge of critically thinking through high stress situations, then the City of Bella Vista Fire and EMS Department wants you.

We serve over 30,000 residents on 48/96 shifts, and operate four full-time fire stations, three engine companies, one ladder, two rescue trucks, six ALS ambulances and multiple highly trained technical rescue teams, including ropes, swift water and diving.

We are a progressive and ever-growing department set in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, with 100 miles of first-class mountain biking trails, seven lakes and countless outdoor amenities that make for the perfect office space. Come see for yourself.



POLICE CAREERSOfficer with kids in a car
The Bella Vista Police Department offers its officers many opportunities in our city of nearly 35,000 residents — from a mountain bike team to a motorcycle unit, crisis negotiators to K9s. BVPD has something to offer all those wanting to serve this community at a higher level.

We strive to put a focus on community first. Our officers patrol to deter crime, rather than take a reactive-only response, and are encouraged to focus on creating partnerships within the community to identify problems early and work together on solutions.

We are looking for those who want to inspire change and growth through positive interactions and relationships.  If that is you, and you exhibit the integrity, teamwork, and leadership skills needed to earn the right to proudly wear the Bella Vista Police Department badge, we encourage you to review our qualification information and apply.
