In Parks & Recreation, we work hard and play harder. It’s what makes us a world-class recreation division. Every employee is involved in the process. From park maintenance to lifeguards to recreation coordinators to instructors, great ideas come from all corners so that we deliver the best experiences to our community.
Be our expert. If you’re a master chef, crafty crafter, dancer, or authority on a teachable skill - share your expertise. We’re always looking for talented individuals to teach a diverse range of recreation programs for all ages – from preschool to 50-plus. Choose from hundreds of specialty courses across our core service areas: aquatics, camps, enrichment, outdoor discovery, sports, therapeutic, and wellness and fitness. If you have questions regarding available opportunities, contact Jen Clouse at 480-782-2705.
Being a lifeguard means you're trusted with the lives of others, so you'll need to be extremely responsible, attentive and patient. With Chandler Aquatics you can put your skills to work protecting the City’s recreation waters and play a vital role in shaping the future of water safety. In addition to living out our mission each day, the staff has their fair share of fun via social outings, team meetings, and special events like the Cardboard Boat Regatta.
