Pay and benefits

Be valued

We believe that valuing public service means valuing public servants. Our greatest assets are the more than 14,000 people who make King County work every day, and we recognize the value of our people through competitive pay and a unique package of flexible, employee benefits.

King County provides exceptional benefits that significantly increase your overall compensation in meaningful ways. Our compensation package is a model tailored to what matters to our employees, from our full-family medical coverage and free regional public transit pass to the flexibility to use sick leave to volunteer at a child's school.
