Langley Township is looking to hire more people for its Parks and Recreation division through a program called Work Where There’s Play.
A variety of positions are available at aquatic facilities, arenas, and recreation and community centres throughout the Township, to suit individual skill levels, interests, lifestyles, and goals.
The Township employs positions ranging from aquatics instructors, lifeguards, and skating instructors, to preschool instructors, recreation leaders, and recreation workers who lead programs and activities and provide information to the public.
Custodial and maintenance workers are also hired to work in recreation, along with customer service staff to work as recreation attendants and cashiers.
Job seekers are encouraged to regularly check the careers section of the Township’s website at tol.ca/careers to see current hirings, and those who would like to Work Where There’s Play can visit tol.ca/recjobs to explore recreation positions and the duties associated with each. Specific experience levels, training, and certifications required for each position are listed, so those who aspire to a job in recreation can plan ahead and ensure they get the necessary requirements.
The Township is currently looking for auxiliary Lifeguard/Instructors and Aquatic Instructors to join its recreation team, and will be hiring for other positions over the next few months.
“The Township of Langley is expecting a busy summer season in recreation this year, and encourages anyone who is interested in health and fitness, would like a flexible work schedule, and wants to provide a valuable service to their community to consider a recreation career with us,” said Christine Blair, the Township’s director of parks and recreation.
