Kaleideum

Compensation: $39,000 – $44,000

Background:

Kaleideum was formed in July 2016 as result of the merger of SciWorks and The Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem. Currently, the museum operates two locations with a combined 95,000 square feet, 200,000 annual visitors and more than 2,200 members. Kaleideum is expecting to move into a single location, located in downtown Winston-Salem, in the fall of 2022. The mission of the Museum is: Inspiring wonder, curiosity, and lifelong learning in our children and community through interactive play and discovery. As a merged entity, we spark the imagination and ignite the intellectual curiosity of our visitors by developing exhibits and programming that fuse STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), literacy, and the arts into an integrated approach to learning. In all our endeavors, we seek to be strong partners with our families, schools, and community members as we prepare future generations for lifelong learning and success.

The Director of Facilities & Exhibits oversees all facets of the museum’s built environments and our facilities care. This includes being directly involved with exhibits daily operations, team development, exhibits project management, exhibit and theatre design, and our new traveling exhibits program, and overseeing campus maintenance, life safety and security, and housekeeping at both Kaleideum campuses! The Director will enhance our indoor and outdoor exhibits, develop our talent, maintain our buildings and grounds, and build and leverage relationships with vendors and business partners.

The successful candidate demonstrates our core values and is resilient, insightful, innovative, accountable, and relationship-driven with a desire to learn new things and remain current on successful strategies in exhibit experience design and exhibit trends. The successful applicant is charismatic, detail-oriented, adaptable, and enthusiastic about being a vital part of the Kaleideum team. The effective candidate will be a thought partner with senior leadership and will collaborate with peers and his or her team to successfully maintain our campuses and exhibits and prepare our exhibits and team for the future in our new building.
