From junior park rangers to lifeguards and more, Broomfield’s summer job opportunities abound

Summer jobs are an amazing opportunity for students, teachers, retirees and others throughout Broomfield and the surrounding area looking to explore new challenges, make some extra spending money and take the next steps in their career.

In addition to competitive pay and flexible scheduling, employees also receive a free Recreation Pass to all facilities to enjoy on their days off.

Applying for a job in aquatics gives teens and young adults the opportunity to test the waters at something unfamiliar. Every summer, Broomfield hires as many as 50 lifeguards to work at The Bay Aquatic Park and the Paul Derda Recreation Center. While the job involves lots of fun in the sun at some of Broomfield’s favorite places, these lifeguards are trained to rescue swimmers and administer emergency services — such as CPR and first aid — skills that will last a lifetime.

If aquatics aren’t for you but you’re looking to stay active, apply for a position within athletics as a coach, official or facilities coordinator. You don’t have to be a sporting hero to be a good coach, all you need is passion, dedication and a clean background check. Lend your passion to the next generation by serving as a coach for tennis, track or other summer sports.

As important as the coaches are the officials. Umpires, referees and other officials ensure the rules are upheld while creating a fun and fair experience with smooth gameplay for players and spectators alike.

If you love nature and the great outdoors and want to help keep Broomfield’s outdoor spaces beautiful for everyone to enjoy, then working for the parks department could be right for you. High schoolers are invited to apply for the position of junior park ranger, a role assisting senior park rangers and park maintenance crews. Those over 18 who’d like to work in the parks can apply to be a seasonal laborer and assist in the maintenance of park areas.

Other summer opportunities happen at Camp Explorer, Broomfield’s summer camp for youth from kindergarten to eighth grade. If you love working with kids, you’ll want to apply to be a camp leader. After a few training sessions, you’ll spend the summer taking kids on field trips to the most fun places in Broomfield.

Applying for a position is easy. Applications are completed 100% online and applicants can fill out a job interest form to be notified of additional openings as they are posted. Better yet, in some cases you can apply for multiple positions with just one application to help you easily find a position that best fits your interests and schedule.

Most applicants will hear back within a week and know they have a great job secured for the summer.

If you are looking for a long-term position the City and County is also hiring for several full-time positions in departments like finance, payroll, police, human services and more.
