CHM Seeking Awesome Individual for a Unique Opportunity

The Carriage House at CHM

Our rockstar Weekend Manager David is leaving his Campbell House gig and moving on to a new opportunity, and we need to fill his job within the next 60 days.

David is Campbell House’s Weekend Manager, and he works weekends — Saturday 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday noon to 4:00 p.m. — but we don’t pay him anything.

Yes, you read that right.

We do, however, give him an apartment with paid utilities. The apartment is the top floor of our Carriage House, so YOU GET TO LIVE AT THE MUSEUM.

In all seriousness, the job encompasses being the boss over the weekend. You’ll open and close the Museum, give tours and supervise the volunteer docents while being a good steward of the grounds, house and property within. Outside of those hours, you have to mow the lawn, water the flower beds, and pick up trash as needed, and we may ask you to lend a hand at a special event here and there, but that’s about it.

The Museum is open by appointment only in January and February (except for an occasional pre-scheduled tour, we’re closed on weekends), so we’ll give you a few projects to accomplish at your leisure during those two months so you can earn your keep. (For example, we may have you paint the break room.)  Campbell House is our other home, and we expect you to treat it with the respect and seriousness it deserves. It is a national treasure, for crying out loud. We even have a plaque that says so.

The apartment is a 500-square foot studio with a kitchen and full bath. It was updated during the Museum’s restoration, so it has newer appliances, plumbing and paint. It has a full alarm system, and we cover your electric, water, trash and sewer. WiFi is also included, and you can use the washer and dryer in the main house.

If you’re a grad student or other adult with a flexible schedule that would lend itself to our weekend hours, send an email to Assistant Director Sam Moore (sam@campbellhousemuseum.org) with a resume or CV and few lines about yourself including why you think you’d be a good fit here. No phone calls or faxes. If we like what we see, we’ll invite you down to look at the apartment and check out the Museum.

    Hi-

    I’m from St. Louis originally, and currently live in Los Angeles. I would love to move back and help with this glorious project. So, two questions:

    1.) Would you accept an application like that?
    2.) Are small pets (kept in the private apartment ONLY, of course; not allowed in the home!) allowed?

    Thank you.

    • Hi Julie – we’re open to any and all applications, shoot me an email with your resume and a few lines about why you think you’d be a good fit at “sam@campbellhousemuseum.org”. Unfortunately, there aren’t any pets allowed.

      Thanks for your interest!
