New Job Opening: Outreach Coordinator

Position Description:

The JMM Outreach Coordinator is a grant-funded, full-time professional position that is expected to lead to a permanent staff position at the expiration of the two-year grant period. (We will consider a job-share by two qualified candidates, each working half time.) This position is being created in response the Museum’s Strategic Plan, which calls for strengthening and expanding outreach into the community during FY11 and FY12.

The JMM Outreach Coordinator will be responsible for marketing, scheduling, facilitating, organizing, and evaluating the Museum’s outreach programs in collaboration with the education staff, the special projects coordinator, and the Museum’s senior staff. The coordinator will represent the Museum with educators, community groups and organizations, public officials, and a wide variety of community venues.

Skills and Experience:

The Museum seeks a highly qualified individual with at least two years of professional or work experience. Graduate training in history, education, Jewish Studies, the humanities, or the arts is preferred; a BA in one of these fields is required. The coordinator must be able to drive a car and/or van to sites across the state of Maryland and have a clean driving record. Excellent writing and communication skills are a must.

The Outreach Coordinator must be able to work both independently and collegially as part of the Museum’s program team. The ability to multi-task and to shift focus rapidly is essential. Work at the Museum is fast-paced and often intense, so the coordinator will be expected to perform smoothly and steadily, even under sometimes pressured circumstances. This position will require some evening and Sunday work.

How to Apply:

Please send resume, cover letter and three (3) professional references to Avi Decter, or hard copies to:

Avi Decter
Jewish Museum of Maryland
15 Lloyd St, Baltimore MD 21202

Applications are due by August 13th, 2010. Be sure to include “Outreach Coordinator” in the subject line.

The JMM does not discriminate in employment on the basis of gender, race, class, age, religion, or ethnicity. Salary will be commensurate with training, skills, and prior experience, especially in relevant areas. Three weeks of vacation and a full package of benefits is offered. The Museum is closed on Sabbath and major Jewish festivals, as well as specific national holidays. The JMM is a drug-free workplace.
