Expand Your Skills Working for Roseville this Summer

We're hiring seasonal summer Parks and Recreation staff.

Land your first job or build your professional resume with sought-after skills including program planning, time management, and leadership!

The City of Roseville is hiring more than 100 seasonal employees this summer. Wages start at $14 an hour. In addition to competitive pay, Roseville’s seasonal jobs provide an opportunity to explore career opportunities in parks and recreation and enjoy your summer outdoors. We're hiring seasonal summer staff.

Positions include:

  •  youth sports coaches 
  • camp counselors 
  • tennis instructors 
  • golf course staff 
  • parks maintenance staff 
  • puppeteers

“It’s a really great first job,” said Roseville Recreation Program Supervisor Gina Brady, who oversees summer youth programs.  

“We hire a lot of staff who are high school and college students and this is their first professional job. You are going to build a lot of quality skills,” Brady said. “You are working with youth. You learn program planning, time management, and organization. You will be learning leadership and teamwork skills. You are also communicating with the public.” 

Seasonal staff attend training, including first aid and hands-on CPR. Coordinators also mentor seasonal staff interested in parks and rec careers, Brady said. Morning, afternoon, and evening hours are available. 

 IMG_4595A summer job is also a great introduction to the field of parks and recreation, said Assistant Parks Director Carrie Anderson.

"A lot of people don’t know parks and recreation is actually a field of study and a profession,” Anderson said. “Getting a seasonal job with us opens some doors to understand what it’s like to work in sports management, parks and recreation, local government, and even education.” 

Zeke Walker started as a seasonal youth sports coach while he was a student at Roseville Area High School. He coached t-ball, track, and basketball.

“I like working with kids and I like coaching,” Walker said. “It’s fun to watch them progress from the start of the summer when they don’t know how to pick up the bat to the end of the summer when they know how to hit the ball.”

Walker has worked for Roseville Parks and Recreation in several different roles. It inspired him to earn a bachelor’s degree in Recreation, Parks, and Leisure from Minnesota State University, Mankato.

Walker will be back this summer in a coordinator role, managing and mentoring seasonal workers.

“It gives you a wide range of skills compared to a retail job,” Walker said. “I would definitely recommend it.”
