Weather Discovery Center Museum Attendant
Part time, year-round, hourly position based at the Weather Discovery Center in North Conway, NH
The Mount Washington Observatory's Weather Discovery Center is a cultural cornerstone of North Conway, providing a unique and engaging educational experience to more than 45,000 people each year.
We are seeking a friendly, outgoing and self-motivated individual to staff the Weather Discovery Center as a Museum Attendant. Duties include welcoming guests, answering questions, processing retail sales, merchandising and light cleaning. Prior retail experience and knowledge of Mt. Washington and local area preferred.
This position works alone in the museum and reports to the Director of Museum Operations. During peak tourist season the museum is visited by upwards of 1,000 people a day, so the Museum Attendant must be comfortable working with people, including bus tour groups and school groups. By contrast, other days are slow, so the Museum Attendant must also be comfortable managing long periods of down time, which are used for basic museum and gift shop upkeep.
To apply, please send a resume and three references to [email protected]. No phone calls, please.
