Working in the Cleveland County Department of Social Services offers the opportunity of serving the public, opportunity for advancement, a worker and client-friendly work environment, and generous employee benefits. Our County is self-insured and offers employees the ability to purchase prescriptions through our County Health Department at reduced rates; and to utilize our Employee Wellness Center for routine health care at a minimal charge.
Cleveland County is nestled in the rolling piedmont of the southwestern portion of North Carolina situated in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
Our county is the gateway between Asheville and Charlotte. Cleveland County is centered between two of the largest metropolitan areas of the Carolinas -- Charlotte and Greenville/Spartanburg.
In addition to providing us with the spectacular changing seasons, our favorable geographic setting also offers wonderful nearby attractions -- steep mountains in one direction, wide beaches in the other, and topped-off with a surrounding array of bustling metropolitan centers, all close enough to be forever tempting day-trippers.
With our family-oriented lifestyle, small-town charm, and Southern, festival atmosphere, Cleveland County is a great place to live, work, play, and just enjoy life.
