St. Louis Mayor Tishaura O. Jones is asking youth and adults to apply for summer jobs with the City of St. Louis. Positions are open for city swimming pools, recreation programs, and laborer/groundskeeping positions. Applicants for the temporary positions do not have to live in the City of St. Louis to apply.
Lifeguards ($15 and hour) and lifeguard supervisors ($15.02 an hour) are needed for the City of St. Louis to open its seven pools this summer. Three of the pools are Chambers Pool, Fairgrounds Pool, and Marquette Pool.
Applicants must be at least 15 years old. Jobsite training is FREE! Due to a current staff shortage, swimming pools will not open until enough staff are hired. Anyone interested in becoming a lifeguard is strongly encouraged to apply.
Recreation Assistants ($15.01 an hour) are needed to assist summer youth recreation programs. Duties include coaching soccer, volleyball, tee ball, cheerleading and basketball, leading arts and crafts, and chaperoning field trips. Applicants must be at 16 years old and should have experience in coaching, participating, or officiating in sports activities.
Utility Workers (limited term) ($15 an hour) are needed to perform semi-skilled labor and equipment operation in streets, parks, grounds, and City of St. Louis facilities. Examples of duties include maintaining streets, removing litter, mowing, trimming, replacing street signs, and loading soil and plants.
Applicants must be at least 16 years old. With the summer mowing season for parks and vacant lots and other needs, there is a great demand to fill these positions. Anyone interested is strongly encouraged to apply.
“These are great opportunities for our City’s youth to gain some experience and earn their first paychecks!” said Mayor Jones. “Working these jobs would make anybody proud to create amazing recreation opportunities for residents of the City of St. Louis.”
