Bend Park and Recreation is making an effort to meet the community's needs by increasing the number of open spots in Kids Inc., adding more than 400 new slots compared to last school year. And naturally, that means BPRD also needs more staff.
BPRD is adding more than 30 new Kids Inc. positions to counter-balance the increase of children. Those interested in these jobs should head to BPRD's job fair on Thursday, July 25 from 3-6pm.
- Bend Park and Recreation District
- A day in the life of Kids Inc. at Jewell Elementary in 2017.
"It’s our hope to fill the positions before the school year begins. I believe that this job provides our staff the flexibility to pursue their interests, whether it’s school, other employment or fun," BPRD Recruiting Manager Kelly Powell told the Source. "Also, these positions will be eligible for our excellent benefits which include health benefits and paid time-off or quarterly bonuses depending on the schedule selected."Both types of positions offer other benefits that can include free attendance in Kids Inc. for the employee's child, recreation facility passes and program discounts. If there are still openings once the school year begins, Powell says BPRD will still be looking to fill these positions until fully staffed.
While attending the fair those interested will be able to ask questions, apply for available positions or even participate in interviews right on Thursday.
