Seasonal opportunities available in Parks and Rec

The City of Yuma seeks applicants to fill several seasonal positions in Parks and Recreation.

The following positions are currently available:

  • Event Assistant (PAR I).
  • Lifeguard.
  • Sports Official (PAR II).
  • Pool Manager.
  • Swim Lesson Instructor.

Each of those positions is open continuously until filled, with the exception of the event assistant position, for which applications are due on July 16.

Full descriptions of these positions can be found online. From the home page of the City’s website at, click on “Employment Information” under the Quick Links heading, then find the above positions under the category “Part Time and Seasonal Opportunities.”

Parks and Rec currently has 24 unfilled positions, and these can have an impact on Parks and Rec programs, such as shortening hours or closing off some amenities. For example, a lack of lifeguards may cause the City to close a wading pool that could otherwise be used by children while an aquatics program runs at the same facility’s main pool.

Specific training and/or certifications are required for certain positions. Please contact Parks and Recreation at 373-5200 for information.
