Summer Student Jobs

Summer 2020

Museum Host


As Museum Host, you are primarily responsible for delivering an excellent visitor experience to everyone who comes into the Museum. This includes:

  • Providing a prompt and cheerful greeting, giving visitors an orientation to the grounds and facilities, and getting them started on their self-guided tour of the Museum
  • Checking in on visitors regularly as they move through the Museum, answering questions about exhibits, artifacts, and local history
  • Helping develop and deliver programs and activities that adhere to social-distancing guidelines
  • Staffing the gift shop and maintaining the cleanliness of grounds and facilities.

Depending on your skills and abilities, this position also provides an opportunity for an independent exhibit-development project.

This position will be funded through Canada Summer Jobs. We can only consider applications from people who meet all of the following criteria:

  • Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or refugee;
  • Legally entitled to work in Canada;
  • Between the ages of 15 and 30 at the start of the work term (5 July 2020)

We have received funding for a maximum of 280 hours of work, which is the equivalent of eight weeks at 35 hours per week (5 July – 29 August 2020). However, we can consider part-time work and extend the position into September. If you are the right candidate, we will work together to establish a schedule that meets your needs and ours.

Hourly rate of pay is $15, plus 4% in lieu of holidays. The Museum is open Tuesday to Saturday; all shifts will fall on those days and will normally be 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Specific work schedule may vary.
