2 Job Postings for Manuels River Hibernia Interpretation Centre

The Manuels River Hibernia Interpretation Centre (MRHIC) is a 1200 m2 facility under construction in the Town of Conception Bay South and due to open early in 2013. While its primary function is to inform visitors about the river—its geology, biology and human history—it will also operate as a community resource, with function rooms, a mini-theatre, and café and gift shop. The Centre will be operated by a small staff of full-time, part-time, and volunteer assistants, overseen by the Manuels River Natural Heritage Society (MRNHS).

The following two positions are full time. They require highly motivated individuals with strong leadership and collaborative abilities. The candidates must have the ability to engage and motivate people.

Operations Manager
The Operations Manager will be responsible to the Board of the MRNHS for the management of the MRHIC, including visitor services (exhibits, programs, gift shop, café, functions, etc.), staff supervision, accounting, building and trail maintenance, marketing and promotion. The Operations Manager will also contribute to the development of the vision and strategic direction of the Centre, ongoing fundraising activities, reporting and liaising with external sponsors.

Experience in business and people management, event planning and customer service would be desirable. Strong leadership, networking, and communication skills are essential. Previous experience in writing funding proposals would be an asset.

Education Manager
The Education Manager will be responsible for the development, promotion and delivery of educational programmes, to include curriculum-related programmes for K-12 school classes, post-secondary programmes for MUN and CNA, summer camps, and a variety of programmes for visiting community groups. The Education Manager will also be responsible for the maintenance and development of the permanent exhibits and the procurement of travelling exhibits. She/he will be assisted by a small staff of part-time and volunteer interpreters.
