The Presidio Trust is seeking a part-time Park Guide to join the Visitor Engagement Department to help operate visitor facilities at the Presidio Officers’ Club on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
The Presidio of San Francisco, formerly a 1,491-acre Army post, is now a new kind of national park with a richly layered history; natural landscapes with wildlife and native plants; historic former military homes and buildings animated by 3,000 residents and 200 organizations; and some of the most iconic views of the San Francisco Bay. The park offers a welcoming mix of visitor experiences, including, environmental art, a network of trails, unique recreation opportunities and self-guided adventures. The Visitor Engagement Department provides welcoming and meaningful opportunities for all to enjoy their national park.
The Park Guide for the Officers’ Club supports meaningful park engagements and provides a positive and informative visitor experience at the Officers’ Club, for all visitors, especially those who may experience barriers to access. As the initial point of contact at the Officers’ Club, this position spends nearly 100% of their work time at an indoor public-facing facility. Park Guides handle a high volume of diverse questions and requests and are expected to be a resource for all visitors and volunteers who also support the Officers’ Club. This position will occasionally support the Presidio Tunnel Tops Park Guides who oversee visitor services at public facilities on the Tunnel Tops including the Field Station and Outpost. The primary audiences for both facilities include general park visitors, school groups, youth and families, community‐based and partner organizations.
Our ideal candidate has a passion for service and interacting with the public, and willing to continually learn and educate yourself about the history of the Presidio and share that knowledge and insights with the visiting public. This Park Guide role is a part-time position (24 hours a week), and must work regular weekends, and occasional holidays. If you are seeking interesting work in a beautiful new park site, we could be a great fit!
