Ottawa County Parks Job Fair

Ottawa County Parks is searching for candidates interested in working outside over the summer. The opportunities would be perfect for students (18+) who are home on break, retirees who want to spend more time outside, or anyone interested in the parks and looking to make some extra money during the summer months.

The Parks Department will be hiring a minimum of 20 seasonal employees for the 2016 season. There are many Lakeshore jobs available, but opportunities exist at parks throughout the County.

Interested candidates can expect immediate interviews with Parks Management and County HR. There is a potential for on-the-spot hires.

  • Park Attendant

  • Gatekeeper
  • Maintenance Work Crew
  • Stewardship Crew
