Today, the city began its annual hiring campaign for summer parks and recreation jobs. While it’s too early to know what safe and fun activities will be offered this spring and summer, the City is preparing for a safe resumption of parks and recreation services.
Each year, Parks, Forestry and Recreation (PFR) employs almost 10,000 people between recreation programs, gardening and landscaping. They are looking for a wide range of skilled applicants from lifeguards and aquatic instructors to outdoor gardeners and parks handy-workers.
In addition to accepting applications online, the City will host virtual job information sessions for youth beginning in March. Applicants can receive tips on what to expect during the hiring process, as well as resumé and interview preparation support.
Applications can be made until March 27. For more information about applications, visit: www.toronto.ca/recjobs.
