Baldwin County school system is hiring – not just teachers
ROBERTSDALE, Alabama (WKRG) – With 4,000 employees, the Baldwin County school system is the county’s largest employer. They want to get even bigger by hosting a job fair on Wednesday to fill vacancies across the system.
The Robertsdale Coliseum has evolved into a one-stop-shop for those looking to find a job, re-enter the workforce or change careers.
âWe’re hiring for babysitting, for the cafeteria, and we also have a teaching position, and we have open teaching positions,â J. Larry Newton principal Patrice Wolfe said.
It doesn’t matter what you are looking for, because it seems the school system has an opening.
âI would say that over the last couple of years it has definitely become more difficult to fill these positions,â said Wolfe. “Some of our positions have been open since the start of the school year and others are recently open.”
Spanish Fort’s Tenaysha Carroll was looking at every opportunity but was looking for something specific. âI have been in human resources for 16 years and unfortunately I couldn’t find what I wanted to do. She spoke with several different feeder models across the county and was able to file multiple requests.
Teresa McMaster has experience in special education. âIt’s a great way to introduce yourself and to meet the school and the people around,â said McMaster.
If you were unable to make it to the career fair and are interested, go to www.BCBE.org and click on the human resources tab and all available jobs will be listed.
