The City of Evansville will kick-off a summer hiring blitz at the February Traveling City Hall meeting.
The meeting will be held Wednesday, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at C.K. Newsome Community Center.
Applications for employment will be available and may be completed and submitted onsite.
Following the introductions of city department heads and public service announcements by Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, the Mayor will demonstrate how to find job vacancies and search for jobs on the city website, which can be accessed by clicking here.
Parks Department Executive Director Brian Holtz will offer details on job openings at city parks and pools, and Administrative Services Executive Director George Fithian will discuss the application process.
After the presentation, the public is welcome to talk to Mayor Winnecke and city department heads about any topic involving city government.
Each summer, the City provides temporary employment opportunities for hundreds of youth and adults at city-maintained facilities, including Mesker Park Zoo & Botanic Gardens, Hartke Pool and Swonder Ice Arena, in addition to numerous golf courses and parks.
One of the biggest needs is for summer camp counselors to supervise children ages 6-to 12 years old at Swonder Ice Arena. Camp Swonder counselors must be friendly and outgoing and take part in all camp activities, including physical exercise, crafts and games. Experience working with children, a basic knowledge of childcare, first aid and CPR certification are required. Swonder will offer a CPR class for those who are not certified, but employees will be responsible for the cost.
Several qualified playground leaders are needed for the Summer Adventures Too program, offered at elementary schools in partnership with the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation. The afternoon recreational program provides physical sporting activities for children in a fun and safe environment.
The City of Evansville currently has other part-time job vacancies, including Solid Waste Recycling Event Coordinator, METS Van Operator and METS cleaners.

C.K. Newsome Community Center is located at 100 E. Walnut Street in Evansville.
