Do you want to put your skills to use?

Whether you are maintaining a Commonwealth facility, operating a wastewater treatment plant, repairing essential vehicles, or inspecting projects, you are providing critical support to Pennsylvania government operations.  Each day presents a new set of challenges to tackle; each assignment, an opportunity to contribute to improved services for Pennsylvanians.  Be it day-to-day operations, or long term projects, the demand remains strong for qualified individuals in the field of trades and maintenance.
