Job Description:


The Mennonite Heritage Village (MHV), located in Steinbach, MB, is an interpretive centre, open-air museum, and community meeting place whose mission is to serve its constituency by relating the story of the Russian Mennonites and their settlement in Manitoba. The museum has a collection of over 16,000 artifacts and more than 30 buildings and historical features on a 40-acre site, including two indoor galleries and numerous display areas. MHV welcomes about 40,000 visitors annually from around the world. For additional information about MHV, visit: www.mhv.ca .

The position of Executive Director (ED) is a senior leadership and management role reporting to the Board of Directors (BOD) and is responsible for overseeing the management of all operational aspects of the museum, including the curatorial, programming, food and retail services, facilities maintenance and rentals, fundraising and donor development departments, and all other functions. The ED will also support the BOD in matters of governance such as the development of the mission, vision and values of the museum; long term strategic planning; financial management; policy development; and other related matters. S/he will normally be the “face” of the museum in its community and constituency.

This position will be available late in 2018. A media release and a complete Position Description are available on the MHV website at www.mhv.ca.
