Marion County holding Government Career Fair this week

Marion County will be looking to fill multiple open positions during its Government Career Fair, which will take place on Wednesday, October 5, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Southeastern Livestock Pavilion.

The career fair will include five organizations across Marion County government, including the Marion County Board of County Commissioners, Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Marion County School Board, Florida Department of Health in Marion County, and Marion County Clerk of Court and Comptroller.

The career fair will provide more information on the positions that are available across all agencies, including jobs in administrative, management, CDL drivers, trades, patrol and detention deputies, technical, and teaching.

Volunteer positions are also available for departments that include library and Animal Services, among others. The minimum age for library volunteers is 14, while Animal Services volunteers must be 16 or older. All other departments have a minimum volunteer age of 18.

Marion County government positions offer several benefits outside of competitive pay and a comprehensive benefits and retirement package. According to the county, all employees and their family members receive 24/7 access to the Marion County Wellness Center, which features exercise and workout equipment for anyone to use.

A wellness program is also offered, and any employee who completes it has the opportunity to save $300 on their insurance premium for the upcoming year.

Career fair attendees are encouraged to bring their resumes and any questions they may have about working with the county government. Representatives from all five government agencies will be on hand to provide more information about the open positions that are available.
