Join the lively team of interpreters who make the Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site a fun and fascinating place to visit (and to work)! Our interpreters have a stellar reputation for delivering cool and evocative educational programs to school groups and tourists from around Canada and the world.

Use your unique talents to enliven each program. In addition, interpreters run the information desk, keep the site tidy, catch bunnies, and select projects. This job involves a lot of time outside in the sunny Badlands as well as in small, dark places such as on our underground tunnel!

The award-winning Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site is the largest museum of its kind in Canada and is home to Canada’s Last Wooden Tipple & you get to talk about it.
You get to drive a 1936 Mancha Mine Locomotive every day!

All buildings on site are original & historic, and you get to see behind the scenes in all of them. You will learn how to build a coal fire, a skill that will save you from frostbite, in the wilderness...if you are close to a supply of coal. We have working artefacts, like carbide lamps, that we get to light with BIG BOOMS, much to the delight of your adoring public.
We appreciate our staff and show them in really fun, yet legal, ways. Most of all, we are active, fun and interesting. Our interpreters have a great chance to bond with the public and have meaningful interactions.

We need positive, enthusiastic individuals with great communication skills and a love of learning. Must be able to get up a hill with a pack of adoring fans/school children behind. We are looking for a self-motivated crew that knows what needs to be done, and does it...without a written invitation. We are at our best with a diverse and well-rounded team!

Interpreters make a visit to the Atlas Coal Mine fun, fascinating, and memorable for our guests. They make sure guests are welcomed, informed, looked after, and inspired during their visit. The focus of the job is interpretive programming, followed by front desk duties, and rounded out by chores and project time.
