New Mexico State Parks is hiring now!

Experience New Mexico by joining our State Parks team!

Your State Parks system preserves natural and cultural resources and provides for outdoor recreation, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. You can make a difference by bringing your unique experience, background, and perspective to support this mission.

We offer opportunities to work in thirty-five state parks and six offices from Clayton to Columbus, Grants to Tucumcari, and anyplace in between. We partner with communities across the state to preserve their history and create places for fun, memorable outdoor adventures.

Are you looking for a full-time, permanent job? We’ve got those. Or maybe you’d prefer to work in parks for a few months as a seasonal ranger? We’ve got some of those, too. Are you someone with some extra time who’d like to volunteer? We’ve got a spot for you.
