A little information about our area

The Kitsap Peninsula and Bainbridge Island are in the heart of Puget Sound, a little more than an hour away from the Seattle-Tacoma metropolitan corridor by car or ferry. The Peninsula is 400 square miles in size, surrounded by 236 miles of pristine saltwater shoreline. Because water access was the only way early settlers could reach the Peninsula, nearly every community in Kitsap has a water view, marina or stretch of beach to enjoy. To learn more, see the Visit Kitsap website.

All qualified candidates for employment will be considered without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, creed, religious or political ideology, age, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, the presence of sensory, mental, or physical disability, or all other bases prohibited by local, state or federal law.
