Fairfax County boasts a top-notch school system, safe neighborhoods, thousands of acres of parkland, and bustling town centers. County government sits at the heart of this dynamic community of 1.1 million residents and seeks employees eager to bring their energy, enthusiasm and skills to serve Fairfax residents and to shape the county's future. Several agencies serve as the gateway to much of the county's economic development and are the stewards of the county's planning, permitting, and construction codes and regulations.
