About the Burke Museum:
When you work at the Burke, you get to help others learn more about the natural and cultural world—and do plenty of learning yourself. There’s always something new to experience! As both a University and State museum, the Burke Museum is a public resource committed to building an inclusive environment that welcomes and values all people. Learn more about the Burke here. In October 2019, the Burke opened a new building turning the work of a museum “inside-out” with visible labs, workrooms, collections storage, and an artist studio.

We recognize that our history, from the founding to the present day, is built upon a colonial model of museums that consistently privileged collections, preservation, and research over cultural autonomy and community survival. Read about the Burke’s Equity & Inclusion work here and here.

Job Summary:

We are seeking a community-focused, process-minded person to welcome new members and deepen existing membership relationships as part of the Burke Visitor Experience. Now settled into our new space, the Membership Manager has the opportunity to refine the Member program in response to visitor and staff feedback.

Reporting to the Director of Visitor Experience (VEXP), this position works closely with other VEXP teams (Burke Store, Visitor Services and Private Events) in addition to collaborating with departments throughout the museum. The Membership Manager is responsible for an annual membership program that encourages visitors to progress from a one-time ticket buyer to a member, donor, and Burke enthusiast. This includes a robust on-site sales program, member events, program development and proactively proposing ideas to energize profitability while supporting the Burke’s mission.

Salary Range: 5,000 to 6,000 per month. Open until filled but priority review deadline is November 19, 2023.
