ACT Historic Places (ACTHP) is seeking to establish a pool of Visitor Experience Hosts to join our Visitor and Commercial Services team in a casual capacity.

We value team-work, a can-do attitude, and proactivity in identifying tasks that make our workplace effective and efficient. On any given day, you could be delivering a program to school students, giving a guided tour of the house to a family, helping out at a major event, looking for visitors onsite for whom you can engage with or even cleaning our public spaces to ensure we are presentable and safe.

An interest in, and an understanding of historic houses is desirable.

A current driver's licence is essential. 

Note: This is casual position and is offered initially as a 12 month contract with the view to renew thereafter at 12 month periods.The salary advertised will be paid as a casual rate of $37.46 per hour.
