NPS local hire jobs now open

Kenai Fjords National Park has an assortment of local hire jobs now open for the summer season.

To be eligible for a local hire position, applicants must have lived or worked near the park for 12 consecutive months, acquiring a level of knowledge and expertise on the cultural and natural resources of the park. Short seasonal residencies do not qualify because a local hire should have experienced the “range of climactic conditions and associated impacts on the resources,” according to the park.

Areas “near” Kenai Fjords National Park extend from Seward and Moose Pass to Milepost 45 of the Seward Highway. It also includes tribal villages with documented ties, including the Native Village of Nanwalek, Seldovia Village Tribe and the Native Village of Port Graham.

See below for open positions. All local hire authority applications must be submitted on paper, either in person or mailed to the park’s Adminstrative Office.
