N.C. Ferry System Seeks Summer Employees for Hatteras Route

​HATTERAS – The N.C. Department of Transportation’s Ferry System is looking for qualified applicants to fill a variety of summer positions on its popular Hatteras-Ocracoke route.

Positions include ferry captains, engine room positions and traffic coordinators.

“We weren’t able to hold a job fair this year due to COVID restrictions, but we still need to fill positions for what will likely be a busy summer season,” said Ferry Division Deputy Director Jed Dixon. “It’s a great way to earn money while spending a summer on the beautiful Outer Banks.”

All positions run on week-on, week-off schedules, and dormitory housing is provided during shift weeks for those who need it. All applicants must either have a current Transportation Worker Identification (TWIC) Card or need to have applied for one.

People interested in applying for openings should contact the Ferry Division’s Human Resources Coordinator Alma Fountain at
