Career opportunities as diverse as the people who work here 

King County’s 14,000 employees provide a wide range of vital services to our community, and we’ve been out talking to some of them about their work and careers at King County.

One of those employees Penny Lara, a Transportation Planner with Metro Transit, is featured in our latest careers video.

“One of the most important things of my job is that I’m in touch with the community,” Penny said in the video. ”I’m also bringing the community’s perspective back to the agency so we can better plan for different programs. We want to make sure that we represent the communities that we serve.”

King County offers a wide range of rewarding careers that provide an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people across our communities.

We are also working to become racially diverse and culturally responsive at all levels of the organization, which will help us provide equitable, high quality services to all our communities, as part of the Equity and Social Justice Strategic Plan.
