The East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) offers a variety of seasonal full-time and part-time jobs including lifeguards and recreation leaders. These positions are ideal for students, seniors and those who enjoy working outdoors.

EBRPD has summer and seasonal jobs available such as being a lifeguard or camp counselor, and year-round, part-time interpretive student aide (ISA) jobs. ISAs work in the various visitor centers with a park naturalist and must be enrolled in college. The EBRPD lifeguard program will train the applicants who are accepted into the lifeguard program to get the proper certification.

“As a public agency, we feel a sense of obligation to our community for students to get valuable work experience,” Sonja Stanchina, a human resources officer at EBRPD, said. “And we are especially interested in hiring bilingual workers, to reflect the diversity of our park users.”

“If we can hire high school and college students, when they are ready to work full time, hopefully, they will think of us. We are investing in our future,” Stanchina said.

For more information, contact the District Human Resources Division,2950 Peralta Oaks Court, Oakland, CA 94605. Phone (510) 544-2154 or go to www.ebparks.org/jobs . Please check the website for application deadlines.
