If you are an outgoing and curious person who loves to learn and share their passion with others, the Heritage Presenter position may be the perfect fit for you! Interpretation is a very creative and collaborative discipline. Interpreters are often life-long learners, love to ask questions and dig deeper.
A Heritage Presenter delivers interpretive presentations, programs and activities to provide visitors with opportunities to discover, appreciate, and connect with the park and its natural and cultural resources. Interpreters facilitate meaningful, relevant, and inclusive experiences to visitors that deepen understanding, broaden perspectives, and inspire engagement with the world around us.
In this role, you will:
• Present meaningful, engaging, and enjoyable interpretation programs and activities to help connect the hearts and minds of visitors to the park.
• Adapt interpretive technique and content to suit the needs of specific visitor groups and individuals.
• Provide feedback and suggestions to improve programs and services.
• Demonstrate interpretation techniques and practices to new staff and volunteers.
• Greet and orient visitors; offer wayfinding information, public safety and interpretive messages.
Bruce Peninsula National Park and Fathom Five National Marine Park are located at the tip of the Saugeen Bruce Peninsula, where the Niagara Escarpment meets the clear waters of Georgian Bay. Tobermory, adjacent to the two parks, is a small village centered around a picturesque harbour that is transformed into a bustling hub of tourist activity during the summer months. These two parks welcome more than 650,000 visitors per year.
The successful candidate will deliver programs at various park sites, moving between facilities, and working outdoors. The interpretation team requires a passionate and engaged team member who has a strong orientation toward client service and educating park visitors about the natural and cultural heritage of the area. The Interpretation team is made up of 5+ interpreters, and part of the larger Visitor Experience department, a fast-paced and collaborative team of 50+ employees in peak season.
