Current Local Hire Job Opportunities

There are no local hire jobs currently available. Please see the attachments below for job duties and application details. To be eligible for local hire, please carefully read the eligibility requirements:

ELIGIBILITY TO APPLY: Any U.S. citizen who has acquired special knowledge or expertise regarding the natural or cultural resources of Kenai Fjords National Park, by reason of having either lived or worked in or near the park. This level of knowledge would be acquired by having lived or worked in or near the park for at least 12 months, to include all four seasons. Short seasonal residency is not qualifying as this would not provide the level of knowledge or expertise that is gained through experiencing the range of climactic conditions and associated impacts on the resources. Areas considered "near" Kenai Fjords National park are the communities of Seward and Moose Pass extending north to Milepost 45 of the Seward Highway, as well as to the tribal villages with documented ties. These tribal villages include the Native Village of Nanwalek and the Native Village of Port Graham on the south western tip of the Kenai Peninsula as well as Seldovia Village Tribe.

For questions or application materials, please visit the park's Administrative Offices or contact us at (907) 422-0500.
