Position:  Facility and Equipment Assistant
Department:  The Art Gallery

Supervisor:
Sr. Theresa Couture, Director—tcouture@rivier.edu

Job Description:
Assistant for Facility and Equipment Upkeep


Qualifications/Skills Needed:

 Depending on the needs of specific gallery exhibitions and general gallery operations, this work-study position offers employment 9 to 11 weeks per semester, 2 to 3 hours per week.

The ideal applicant is one who enjoys physical tasks, likes to be helpful, and is especially skillful at working with his/her hands. Tasks vary, so background experience as an all around “handy-person” is important. Patching walls, adjusting lighting, setting up computer stations, helping pack and unpack shipments of art, organizing gallery storage areas, and basic cleaning and/or repair jobs are some of the most typical items on the weekly “to-do” list.

In general, work is scheduled once or twice a week starting at 4:00 PM, but because each exhibition period has different requirements, occasional flexibility is appreciated.

An application interview is required during the first week of classes. Kindly e-mail the Gallery Director, Sister Theresa Couture, at tcouture@rivier.edu. No phone calls please. In the e-mail describe your skills for this work-study position and also indicate days and times when you can be available to work.
