Do you love history, nature, culture and being part of a dynamic team? Want a flexible part-time role that works with your schedule?

Organized, self-starter wanted to help manage the headquarters office of the Jay Heritage Center (JHC), an award-winning nonprofit educational organization based in Rye, New York.  JHC’s offices are located at the landmark Jay Estate, a stunning 23-acre park along the shore of Long Island Sound. We host innovative and inclusive programs in American History, Architecture, Environmental Stewardship, and Social Justice.

The Office Manager will assist Executive Director, Kevin Peraino in all aspects of the management of the headquarters office. Duties will range from clerical tasks like data entry, invoice management, and answering the telephones, to coordinating the logistics of school field trips to the site, to light marketing responsibilities including liaising with the local media.

Although a significant portion of the Office Manager’s time will necessarily be spent on basic office management tasks like tidying the work space and keeping the office stocked with supplies, there is also a great deal of room to grow professionally for an ambitious candidate with an interest in history, current affairs, and the great outdoors. The Office Manager will work closely with the Executive Director to help plan public programs, lead tours of the 1838 Jay Mansion, and preserve and improve the buildings and grounds.

This is a part-time position (roughly 17 hours per week). The Office Manager should also be available with advance notice to work at selected weekend events like Sunday afternoon tours and public programs.

The successful candidate must have a bachelor’s degree, preferably in business, marketing, accounting, history, or another related discipline. Prior experience working at historic sites, parks or cultural institutions highly valued.  Tech savvy essential (Constant Contact, Excel, WordPress). Strong organizational and interpersonal skills a must.
