Niagara Parks is offering job-seekers an opportunity to become, what they call, their “newest storytellers” in a series of job fairs running until May. Throughout the events, Niagara Parks is hoping to hire more than 350 people for its 2023 season.

The fairs, which are running once a month, are meant to attract those searching for employment through a variety of unique job openings. Niagara Parks is looking to fill positions ranging from guest ambassadors and sales associates to cooks and maintenance workers.

Niagara Parks has different types of positions open to suit a variety of needs. Full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions are being filled, and the commission has job openings for students as well.

The first fair of the year took place on Jan. 14 at the Table Rock Centre. Over 500 people visited the fair, many with cover letters in-hand and hoping to show Niagara Parks what they have to offer.

Handing in resumes wasn’t the only thing attendees could do at the fair – certain applicants received impromptu interviews with potential employers, many being hired on the spot.

The remaining fairs are set to take place at the Niagara Parks Power Station on Feb. 11 and Mar. 4, at the Table Rock Centre on Apr. 15 and at the Legends on the Niagara Clubhouse on May 6

Despite the variety of planned upcoming dates, those who are interested would be well-advised to sign up for the February fair in particular, as the Niagara Falls Review has stated that the large turnout at January’s fair may cause the need for later events to be re-evaluated. 170 people are already signed up to attend the February edition of the fair.

According to Niagara Parks, many seasonal staff return to resume their positions yearly, with more “exciting opportunities” opening up to staff in later years of employment. The commission has also stated that taking on one of their positions can eventually lead to roles with other attractions in Ontario such as Ripley’s Aquarium and Canada’s Wonderland.

As an added bonus, all of Niagara Parks’ employees have access to free attraction admissions, free tickets for friends and family and discounts at every retail and culinary location that the commission has to offer.

Niagara Parks is known for its plethora of attractions including the Butterfly Conservatory, Journey Behind the Falls and the Niagara Parks Power Station. The variety of positions on display are sure to attract those looking for a sense of adventure in their next employment opportunity.
