Are you someone who thrives on bringing teams of people together? Maybe you’re a master of rostering and looking for your next challenge? Here’s an exciting opportunity where you could contribute to bringing more fun and special experiences to MOTAT’s visitors!

In this role, you will manage and roster a team of staff and volunteers who operate at the MOTAT frontline every day, and during special public programmes and events. The range of skill-sets within this team are somewhat unique and physical in nature, so having a good head around Health & Safety is vital.

Responsibilities include:

  • Coordinating and rostering the team’s daily operations.

  • Seeking opportunities to maximise team operations, especially for public events.

  • Ensuring the smooth and efficient running of machinery & objects operated by your team.

  • Developing necessary training programmes & processes in collaboration with the H&S Team.

  • Working in with other teams to coordinate wider site operations, as required.

We are on the lookout for someone who is pragmatic, proactive and committed. With the ultimate goal of bringing MOTAT to life for its visitors, you will have strong communication and enjoy working with people from all walks of life, young and old.

Successful candidates will also have:

  • Sound problem solving and logical thinking, with ability to focus on the bigger picture.

  • Demonstrated experience coordinating teams, ideally in a complex environment.

  • Intermediate to advanced IT skills. Experience with Excel an advantage.
