People seeking jobs during the current economic downturn may find new employment opportunities with Wake County. The county plans to hire about 235 temporary staff members over the next month to support its ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Most of the positions will support the public health function of the COVID-19 response, including contact tracing, epidemiology, and nursing, while other roles will support operations and logistics management for our efforts to fight the virus.
“We are now on day 112 of running our Emergency Operations Center – the longest response in Wake County’s history – and it’s not going to end any time soon,” said Wake County Manager David Ellis. “As we look at how we can start reopening our facilities and begin providing services to our residents again, we must temporarily expand our workforce, so we can continue leading the fight against COVID-19 in a sustainable way.”
