WHO WE HIRE: We are looking for outgoing, energetic, hard working and responsible college students who are ready to have a fun summer experience. The FVC is not just a job. Staff must be personable and ready to go above and beyond the call of duty, including but not limited to working unscheduled hours or having to change a diaper. Liking children and adults is a must!

WHEN WE HIRE: Recruitment and hiring begins at the beginning of each calendar year. The New Staff Application will be posted online and applications will be accepted until the application deadline. Group and Individual Interviews will take place in early spring.

FVC LOCATION: San Rafael Residence Tower and Clusters located on the UC Santa Barbara Campus.

SALARIES: Room and board are included, as well as monetary compensation. Please contact our office at (805) 893-3123 for salary structure.

WORK SCHEDULE & TIME OFF: Staffers typically work a 40-50 hour work week, including evening hours and weekends, with a flexible day off per week. Working at the FVC is a full-time commitment, and we discourage other summer obligations. Scheduled hours vary and are not determined until the end of workweek or later.

LIVING ARRANGEMENTS: Staffers live in the singles halls of San Rafael Residence Hall. In general, staff living quarters are close, but each staff member has a private room. Three meals are provided each day (with some exceptions) and the staff is encouraged to eat with the guests.

REQUIREMENTS: ALL staff must be certified in CPR and First Aid. This is a condition of employment. In addition, aquatics staff must obtain a Lifeguard Certification prior to the summer season. It is recommended that you make plans early to attend an upcoming training class. All staff will be subject to a background check.

STAFF HANDBOOK: Guidelines and policies of the Family Vacation Center are explained for hired staffers in the Staff Handbook. Violation of any policy may result in disciplinary action, up to, and including, termination of employment.
