JOB OPPORTUNITIES

I-Park Foundation Inc. – Executive Director
We are seeking an inspirational, highly collaborative leader who will commit their skills and energies to the important work of nurturing the creative practices of highly talented artists who are powering the cultural vanguard. With generous, reliable operational and financial support from the board, the Executive Director (ED) will continue to professionalize and streamline operations without losing sight of the daily mission: helping to remove obstacles to the artists’ productivity, encouraging a healthy balance between solitary studio time and time for collegial exchanges – and safeguarding the artists’ privacy and tranquility, while providing for their physical comfort and safety.

The ED will commit to accelerating organizational development and to a smooth, respectful transition from a founder led culture, seventeen years in the making, that has facilitated almost 900 fully funded residencies, innovative programming and growing recognition within the field. In this transition, the board and ED will be aided by external resources to ensure that the ED position is empowered with an appropriate level of operational autonomy in the context of strategic board oversight. During, and beyond, this most exciting moment in the organization’s evolution, the ED will agree to sustain the values upon which I-Park was founded: kindness, attentiveness and authenticity.

Mystic Seaport is seeking Museum Interpreters. “What is that?” you ask. Only the coolest job ever! You might find yourself 40 feet in the air on a mast overlooking the Mystic River teaching and demonstrating historic sailors’ skills. Or you could be in the blacksmith shop banging out a totally boss set of hooks, shaping a barrel stave with a draw knife in the cooperage, or “splitting” a cod fish on the deck of a 100-year-old wooden fishing schooner. Maybe you like to perform, play music, or sing. If so, you could be belting out a chantey as we raise a sail or heave at the capstan. If these things sound awesome (and they are), and you like people (like we do), and you are physically capable of working outdoors in all kinds of weather, can project your voice to a group, and might have a bit of a history nerd streak, this is the place for you.  So, if you think you have what it takes to provide our visitors a great experience, we want to hear from you. You will be immersed in a unique, exciting, educational, and fun environment that will challenge, delight, and surprise you every day (and your friends will be super impressed when you explain all the things an interpreter actually does).

Please note that all applicants must be available for an onsite interview. Selected applicants will also be expected to complete two weeks of mandatory training (between June 1 and 15) prior to the start of work.  Please visit https://recruiting.myapps.paychex.com/appone/MainInfoReq.asp?R_ID=1846752 to apply.  (posted 2/8/18)
