Employment Opportunities


Our student employees’ professional development is one of our highest priorities. We commit to the development of our staff by offering challenging jobs, with meaningful leadership experiences and purposeful on-going training. Our student staffing structure is such that if a student has the desire and drive, he or she can move through the ranks to a position of high responsibility and leadership within a four-year span. We also pride ourselves on offering a fun and friendly team-centered environment, with family-like camaraderie. UMaine’s Department of Campus Recreation is the best of both worlds… great work experience and a whole lot of fun too!
