Facility Attendants

The Kirkland Parks and Community Services Department seeks Facility Program Attendant staff for the North Kirkland Community Center, Peter Kirk Community Center, and Heritage Hall. This position acts as an on-site City representative for recreation programs, activities, and rentals. 

Heritage Hall needs a Facility Attendant to open the building for private rentals and then stay at City Hall during the rental. After, check the renter out of the hall and close it. Typical work hours are on weekends. This is a great position for students, retirees, and those seeking a side job as it allows a flexible schedule. While on-call during the rental, you can study, read, or do simple work projects.
