A variety of exciting and challenging employment opportunities await you at Big Hole and Bear Paw National Battlefields. While we are a small staff, we do fill positions in interpretation, maintenance, and administration. Some jobs are office-oriented, others focus on working with the public, and some involve working outdoors. Each job performs a vital function - that of providing visitors an opportunity to enjoy a meaningful experience, while working hard to preserve natural and cultural resources for future generations.
