Proud to be a “Best Place” to Work

We offer comprehensive benefits, a competitive compensation package and a supportive environment that empowers you to learn, grow, advance and provide exceptional client care. We take employee satisfaction and work-life balance seriously.

And you couldn’t ask for a more beautiful place to live. Kitsap County offers abundant green space, more than 250 miles of shoreline and myriad recreational opportunities in a suburban/rural location that is just 30 minutes by ferry from Seattle’s cultural amenities.

Here’s a snapshot of our benefits, which are available to regular full-time and part-time employees working at least 20 hours a week, pro-rated accordingly. Spouses and children are also eligible for coverage.

Retirement Plan (Tax Sheltered Annuity)

Once eligible, KMHS employees are enrolled in our 403 (b) retirement plan and become fully vested after 5 years. KMHS contributes 4% over and above your annual wage earnings. You may also contribute to the retirement plan. The retirement plan agent is available to meet with you to discuss your personal goals and options.
