DPW Laborers
The Town is always accepting applications to keep on file as positions become available. Most DPW positions require a CDL and/or hoisting license with very few exceptions. Exceptions include some custodial positions and all summer employment, which require a valid driver's license.

Summer Employment
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dates of future initiatives remains uncertain. While we are accepting applications for summer employment, start dates are currently unknown.

The Town has a limited number of summer employment opportunities within the Public Works department. To be eligible to apply, you should be a Wakefield resident who is enrolled in a continued educational program, be over 18, and posess a valid drivers licence. Employment is offered to returning students beginning in March. Openings remaining after March will be offered in April for a May or June start.

Job openings for the School Department can be found at Wakefield High School, and job openings for the Gas & Light Department are maintained by the Wakefield Municipal Gas & Light Department, and job openings for summer recreation are maintained by the Recreation Department.
