Assistant Museum Manager (posted 3/1/19)

Kidcity Children's Museum seeks a person of multiple talents for the position of Assistant Museum Manager, reporting to the Museum Manager. The Assistant Museum Manager will need to balance three primary functions: operating the museum front desk (check-in, customer service, membership sales); supervising the floor staff (scheduling, training, oversight, floor work as needed); and occasionally assisting with other museum needs (purchasing, social media posts, email, and coordinating museum maintenance).

The ideal candidate will be passionate about creating an exceptional experience for visitors to the museum. Essential qualities include a keen sense of hospitality, the ability to operate in a busy public environment, strong communication skills and the desire to maintain a great working environment. The position can be physically demanding and may include maintenance tasks as needed. Visitor services or other experience working with the public is required (e.g., restaurant or retail).

A typical 5-day schedule will include Saturdays, Sundays and three weekdays. Additional benefits, including health insurance, are included in the compensation package (salary range begins at $35,000).

Kidcity, a non-profit tourist attraction with 110,000 annual visitors, is a hands-on children's museum in its 20th year, offering whimsical imagination play for kids age 1 to 7 and their significant grown-ups. Our exhibits are one-of-a-kind immersive environments, created by our in-house artists, and designed to engage both kids and adults in pretend play. The museum is located just off Main Street in downtown Middletown – a little city with a big-heart, just off-center in Connecticut.
