Glen Foerd is looking for Visitor Services Assistants to steward the museum during public visitation hours and during private, catered events. 

Visitor Services Assistants’ duties are two-fold: welcoming the general public for self-guided tours, and supervising vendors and partners when Glen Foerd is rented for private events. The majority of these events are weddings, taking place on weekends. Wedding guests are not only event attendees, but potential return visitors, and Visitor Services Assistants act as hospitable representatives for Glen Foerd while stewarding the site.

They should be prepared to handle problems that may arise, such as excessive noise levels and general misconduct. The Visitor Services Assistant is responsible for seeing that Glen Foerd policies are followed, ensuring that the museum and collection are treated respectfully, and making sure that the site is clean and secure at the end of the night.
