Job Description

This is seasonal paraprofessional work in supervising and implementing outdoor recreation programs at parks, and playgrounds for our Rec 'n Roll Summer Program. The work will require the knowledge of techniques, methods, and procedures used in recreational activities. May schedule, assign, monitor, and review the work of others. Contacts with others require skills in understanding and/or influencing people and are important in providing client services, including skills of persuasiveness, assertiveness, and sensitivity to others point of view that are required to influence behavior, change an opinion, or turn a situation around.

The work is standardized in that tasks are covered by substantially diversified procedures and specialized standards, and because of the changing priorities, or different situations, incumbents have the latitude to consider which of the many procedures or standards should be followed and in what sequence. The outdoor recreational coordinating work involves differing situations requiring use of judgment in search for solutions or new applications within ones' known experiences. The work is performed in a field and office environment, but the risks and hazards are minimal, known, predictable, and controllable. Due to the nature of outdoor recreation programming, the employee may be required to work evenings and on weekends. Operates a vehicle and standard office equipment to include computers using word processing, spreadsheet, database, and presentation software. The physical demands are minimal. Work is performed under limited supervision where the work assignments are subject to established procedures, practices, and techniques, and the employee plans and organizes his/her own work, and the work is reviewed for results achieved.
