Discover the Outdoors:
Connecting Youth with the Outdoors
While many Bend residents enjoy easy outdoor recreation access, there are unseen barriers to the outdoors for some people in our community. Learn how BPRD is reducing barriers and developing appreciation of the outdoors for more residents by utilizing recreation scholarships, bilingual staff and grant help from the Children’s Forest of Central Oregon and the U.S. Forest Service.

How do I know if Bend Park and Recreation District is accepting applications?
BPRD accepts applications only for open positions. The open positions are posted on the website as soon as they are available. If an application is submitted in which there is no job opening posted, the application will not be processed or retained on file. If you have submitted an application for a position that is not open, you will be notified with an email.
Can I submit a resume in lieu of an application?
Resumes are accepted for open positions. However, if an applicant becomes a finalist, an application will be required.
When will I be notified?
In most cases, applicants are notified within two weeks from the close date of the recruitment either by telephone or in writing.
How long is my application kept on file?
Applications are active for six months for that position only.
Do I need to re-submit an application if another position opens up with the same title?
A supervisor may choose to recruit from an active file or re-open to the public. If the supervisor chooses to re-open, the active list will not be used and you will need to reapply if you are interested in the position.
Once I submit my application, will I be notified of my status?
Candidates who best meet the requirements of the position are telephoned and invited to participate in the selection process. Those not selected for further consideration will be notified by mail.
Will I receive an interview?
Applications are reviewed and competitively evaluated according to the requirements listed on the job description. Only those applicants who demonstrate the most closely related work experience, education and training will receive further consideration for employment.
