Job ID: 228717292
Under the supervision of the Campus Coordinator, the House Manager works as part of a team and independently to ensure that each client has a successful event experience at the Northwest Maritime Center. Specifically, the House Manager is responsible for setting up/breaking down events, securing the facility after an event, being the face of the NWMC during events, and running/troubleshooting the A/V system.
While this position’s primary responsibility is creating a successful event experience, the House Manager will work as part of the NWMC team to ensure smooth operations for the organization as a whole. This could include providing information to visitors to the Maritime Center and helping out in projects and events that require all-hands-on-deck, to helping tie up a vessel coming into our dock because you happen to be standing there. We all pitch in for the heavy lifting now and then—sometimes this is metaphoric; occasionally we all have to actually help lift something heavy.
SCHEDULEPart-time AND On-call, mostly weekends and evenings. During the busy summer months average about 40 - 50 hours per month and 15 - 20 hours per month in the slower off-season months.
APPLICATION PROCESSSubmit resume and cover letter for consideration. Position open until filled.
WHY YOU WANT TO WORK HERE
There are rare moments when organizations have the combination of a talented and motivated staff, an engaged board, a healthy and productive work culture, are executing well on existing programs but still innovating and looking for the next step—we’re in that moment, and it’s exciting.
The NWMC is dynamic, growing, making a difference in our community, and taking an increasing role in the region. We serve individual students and program participants, but we also work to help solve community problems like systemic improvements in our public schools, economic development, job training, and working regionally to pair the opportunities in the maritime industry with the need to address systemic oppression in communities of color. Plus, all of the fun stuff like kids’ programs, festivals, and adventure races. Our waterfront campus is vibrant with a multitude of compelling activities, and all of them done to meet or advance industry best practices. In the words of a board member: “We don’t do B work.”
On top of it all, you’d get to work on the water in Port Townsend: natural beauty, heritage buildings, arts community, wooden boats, zero traffic jams. The Northwest Maritime Center’s relative scale to our small town means that the effects of our success can be observed in the success of our community. You’ll be doing meaningful work for the place you live and your efforts will make a tangible difference.
Right team, right moment, the right momentum, and the chance to move the needle for the prosperity of an entire community: That’s why we get excited to come to work in the morning, and that’s why we think you should want to be here too.
The Northwest Maritime Center is an equal opportunity employer that welcomes and encourages individuals of all cultures and communities to apply.
