The options are limitless at Thanksgiving Point for family entertainment and valuable learning experiences. Roaming with dinosaurs at the Museum of Ancient Life, exploring a working farm at Farm Country, strolling the beauty of our 55-acres botanical beauty at the Ashton Gardens, or climbing on a high ropes course at the Museum of Natural Curiosity are just a few of the numerous activities that await you when you visit'and coming in 2019 The Butterfly Biosphere! 

We are looking for passionate problem solvers to help fulfill Thanksgiving Point's mission of transformative family learning. We are strongly committed to creating a better everyday life for ourselves and our guests.

The role of Director of Facilities is critical in our day to day operations and in the experiences of our visitors. When properly maintaining a large museum complex, we pay not only for bricks and mortar, but also for the well-being of our guests and team-members alike. An effective maintenance plan protects capital investments, ensures the health and safety of our visitors, and supports our educational objectives.

In order to do this job, you'll need:

  • About 5 years of construction management and public or business administration experience, with a high-level knowledge of electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems
  • Working knowledge of building systems, contractual maintenance and related services
  • Familiarity with safety codes and ADA requirements to assure compliance and accessibility
  • A "safety first" mentality
  • Attention to detail
  • Ability to work well with others and foster key relationships
  • The skill and know-how to jump in and fix something yourself, when needed
  • Must have working knowledge of CMMS (Computerized maintenance management system) or CMMIS (computerized maintenance management information system),  a software package that maintains a computer database of information about an organization's maintenance operations. This information is intended to help maintenance workers do their jobs more effectively (for example, determining which machines require maintenance and which storerooms contain the spare parts they need) and to help management make informed decisions (for example, calculating the cost of machine breakdown repair versus preventive maintenance for each machine, possibly leading to better allocation of resources). CMMS data may also be used to verify regulatory compliance.


If this sounds like you, we invite you to apply.

Thanksgiving Point Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit farm, garden, and museum complex that draws upon the natural world to cultivate transformative family learning.
