Opportunities at Huronia Historical Parks
On-call ticket booth/retail attendants
Do you excel in customer service and cash handling? We are hiring multiple on-call workers to support admissions and retail operations at Sainte-Marie among the Hurons and Discovery Harbour in 2023. These employees mainly work within the Sainte-Marie visitors’ centre in early fall, and then are invited to support key special events including:
- Pumpkinferno at Discovery Harbour from October 4 to 29
- Hometown Harvest Festival at Sainte-Marie on October 7 and 8
- First Light at Sainte-Marie November 16 to December 2
This is your opportunity to help to preserve and maintain history! Become an important part of a team caring for historical buildings at this reconstructed 17th century mission. The successful candidate will also build modern structures, operate vehicles and equipment, support general maintenance, as well as provide advice and technical direction to summer maintenance students and contractors. If you’re a skilled tradesperson with strong carpentry knowledge looking for meaningful part-time work with a great team, this might be the opportunity for you.
On-call historical interpreters
If you love history, enjoy public speaking, and are interested in traditional craftwork, you might make a great historical interpreter. We’re seeking several on-call interpreters at both historic sites. French and German are assets. Applications from Indigenous individuals are encouraged.
