Aiken County is looking for new hires.

The County will host a job fair from 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 12 in the Sandlapper Room on the first floor of the Aiken County Government Center, 1930 University Parkway.

“We have jobs, and we’re looking for people to fill them,” said the County’s Human Resources Director Gayle Wolman.

According to Wolman, available positions include road patrol and dispatch positions with the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, detention center employees at the Aiken County detention center, various employment positions requiring a commercial driver’s license, an appraiser for the Assessor’s Office requiring a college degree and experienced emergency medical personnel, preferably paramedics, to work with the County’s Emergency Medical Services division.

The County is also seeking a branch manager for the County’s library system. Applicants must have at least two years experience working in a library.

“We want to get the word out that Aiken County is indeed hiring,” Wolman said. “We invite all interested applicants to attend the job fair and complete an employment application.”

And if attending the job fair doesn’t fit with potential applicants’ hectic schedules, individuals can always fill out an application for jobs posted on the Aiken County website, Wolman said.

Wolman said applicants interested in applying for positions with the Sheriff’s Office should visit the Aiken County website, www.aiken countysc.gov, or the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office website, www.aikencountysheriff.org, to pick up an application specifically for the Sheriff’s Office positions.

“We’re always open, and applicants are always welcome to come by and fill out an applicant for one of the many positions available with Aiken County,” she said.

The Human Resources Office is located on the third floor of the Aiken County Government Center.
