Looking for an exciting, flexible and casual museum education role?
Located on Darling Harbour, the Australian National Maritime Museum (ANMM) is the leading maritime museum in Australia with a unique collection of some 135,000 items relating to Australia’s extensive maritime history and culture. The museum is looking for highly motivated teaching professionals with extensive primary or secondary school classroom experience to join our dynamic team of Museum Educators. We pride ourselves on providing quality, innovative programs for school students and are looking for people with great written and verbal communication skills for various casual shifts throughout the school year.
You will be expected to:
- Deliver curriculum-linked educational tours and workshops to school students in and around the museum and on board our historic vessels (you may be asked to dress up for some tours, for example Pirate School)
- Be physically fit as your role may include walking; some lifting; set up and take down of equipment and climbing on and off a range of vessels
- Work with children of all age groups and outside your chosen subject area
- Work cooperatively as a team member
This is a casual role with no guarantee of hours, although we can usually find you plenty of work, especially in Terms 2 and 3. Shifts are a minimum 3 hours long and are usually between 9am and 3pm. There are also opportunities to work on program development, digital learning materials and other museum programs. We are looking for teachers from any subject area, including teachers with experience in Chemistry, as well as Indigenous educators.
