Columbus Parks Seeking Summer Employees

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — The Columbus Department of Recreation and Parks sought to fill several summer positions by hosting a job fair on Saturday.

Current staff members gathered at the Dodge Community Center Saturday afternoon for the department’s first hiring fair of the season. Eligible and qualified candidates were able to be hired locally with on-site interviews and processing by the human resources department.

Columbus Recreation and Parks hopes to fill summer positions such as lifeguards, camp counselors, park maintenance staff, event staff, etc.

Department director Bernita Reese said that while the department is currently looking for seasonal workers, it can sometimes lead to full-time employment.

“This is happening not only in our recreation centers, but also in our parks department, in our aquatics,” Reese said. “We have an indoor aquatics facility so we are also looking for lifeguards all year round so not just seasonal but that is something we are looking for, people who want to join our team and make a difference here in the city ​​of Columbus.
