Do you enjoy being outdoors and working with your hands?  You could be part of the team that creates some of New York’s most beloved entertainment experiences. 

With national visibility and local accolades as the tri-state area’s top source for family friendly entertainment, Historic Hudson Valley (www.hudsonvalley.org) educates and entertains more than 300,000 visitors a year through our school programs, house tours, and large-scale special events like the Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze and Horseman’s Hollow.

Historic Hudson Valley, Westchester County’s largest cultural organization, seeks a hard-working, enthusiastic, Groundskeeper who will help us ensure that landscapes and gardens are well – tended and attractive for visitors. 

The Groundskeeper will provide a variety of landscaping and gardening duties including mowing, trimming, planting, weeding, snow and leave removal and assisting with setting up and removing elements associated with our exciting events.

This is a part-time, seasonal position (April – December) that offers and requires a lot of flexibility (weekend, holiday, and evening availability are a must.)

You must be in good physical condition…you will have to do some heavy lifting and moving — of the 50-pound box variety — and be able to work outdoors in all kinds of weather. Familiarity with hand tools, power tools and various methods of grounds maintenance is required.  A valid driver’s license is a must as is basic computer proficiency (e.g. e-mail and the internet) and a high school diploma or GED. 

Are you that special kind of person who can work well independently and also as part of a collaborative team? We definitely want to hear from you.

Besides a congenial working environment, starting pay rate of $12.00 per hour and flexible hours, Historic Hudson Valley offers:

  • FREE and reduced admission to our events and sites for you and your immediate family
  • FREE and reduced admission to other participating historic sites and museums
  • Museum shop and café discounts
  • Working for a highly regarded organization that creates extraordinary experiences for large audiences.

To apply, please send a letter of interest and resume to jobs@hudsonvalley.org.  Please include “Groundskeeper” in the subject line.  Candidates of diverse ethnic and racial background are encouraged to apply.  No calls please.

Should your skills and qualifications meet our requirements we will contact you to schedule an interview.  If we do not contact you, we will keep your resume on file for one year in the event that another position for which you may be suited becomes available.  Thank you for your interest in Historic Hudson Valley.
