Vermont State Parks is a great place to work! You'll work in beautiful places with great people. Like our campers, many staff have been coming back every year, but each year approximately a third of our staff will be new hires.
Our season generally runs from early May through mid-September or October. Most frequently, new hires will begin as park attendants and work their way up to Assistant Ranger or Ranger positions.
We don't require law enforcement experience or a heavy duty maintenance background, but we do require a great attitude, excellent communication and customer service skills and a fantastic work ethic.
It our policy as part of hiring procedures to conduct thorough background checks annually on all employees and volunteers regardless of prior employment or volunteer status with the Parks Division. These background checks will include a full national, state and local background check for each finalist. Certain types of offenses may disqualify an applicant from consideration.
We usually begin recruiting around the first of January each year. Hope you will join us!
