Administrator/Director Job Posting
Union Street Gallery is looking for a full-time administrator to oversee the organization beginning in May/June 2019. Union Street Gallery is a nonprofit art gallery and studios located in Chicago Heights. Our mission is to facilitate a variety of engaging arts experiences and opportunities that support the creative growth of artists and art appreciators adding to the cultural landscape of Chicago’s Southland. The Administrator is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day functions, staff, and volunteers of the organization, as well as managing all parts of the organization, events, and funding necessary to support and sustain the organization.
Artists with nonprofit or business management experience OR a nonprofit administrator with an appreciation for the arts would be a perfect fit. Your ability to manage the organization and work to meet OUR mission is more important than your artistic accomplishments. Like most nonprofits, you will be working to recruit and maintain volunteers and always on the look out for more funding. You should be willing to write a report, carry large pedestals upstairs, plan deadlines with a juror, and mop the bathroom all in the same day.
Hours: The administrator is expected to be present in the gallery a minimum of four days a week with consistent hours (typically on open days). They can flexibly work from home another day, but are on-call at all times in case of building emergencies. Some weeks will require flexibility based on evening and weekend responsibilities like meetings, receptions, building maintenance/repairs, field trips, and private gallery rentals. A beginning schedule will be determined with the administrator and board president prior to start date and revised as needed.
Wage: Commensurate with experience; 28,000-32,000
