Join the Acadia National Park Team

Acadia is more than a place. It is a team of people working together every day to protect the park and serve its visitors. Our park staff is made up of federal employees, partners, volunteers, interns, and more.

As a unit of the United States government, all job announcements for federal jobs are posted on USAJobs. Year-round and seasonal positions are posted there throughout the year for our different work areas including – maintaining roads, trails, and facilities; law enforcement and search and rescue; and interpreting park resources and meanings for visitors.

Use the feed below to see if there are open federal positions, but always check USAJobs to be sure. Check out our Tips for Applying for Seasonals Job at Acadia, and visit the National Park Service's Work For Us page for servicewide information.
