Kent County Parks and Recreation has several seasonal job openings and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. All seasonal positions are part-time and offer no benefits. Volunteers and employees working directly with children require a criminal history check and child abuse and neglect registry check to be completed. If you are interested in applying for a position or volunteering you will first need to complete a Kent County job application or volunteer application. Applications are accepted on a seasonal basis (beginning January 2 for summer jobs and July 1 for school year jobs), but there may be some positions that have specific hiring deadlines (for example summer jobs).
