Seattle Aquarium Conservation Request for Proposal

The Seattle Aquarium is ready to take the next step in its evolution as a conservation organization by elevating our priority and investment in conservation activities related to the Salish Sea and Pacific Ocean, and the communities that rely upon these critical ecosystems. While we are proud of the impact we have had in the areas of Puget Sound and ocean conservation education, policy, research and rehabilitation, we believe creating a more cohesive and strategic direction under a new, visionary leader will allow us to effect greater change. As we are currently embarking on a significant, long-term master plan for expansion on the Seattle waterfront, it is more important than ever to strategically invest in and grow our conservation activities so that when the new exhibits open, they are telling the most relevant and impactful stories for Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment.

Greeter-Ambassador (Two temporary positions)

The primary function of the greeter-ambassador is to help improve the visitor experience by engaging visitors early in their experience. Construction along the waterfront construction can present a challenge to guests, making it difficult to find the Aquarium’s entrance. The greeter-ambassador will work outside, proactively assisting the public to cross the street and enter the facility. This includes navigating guest entry, facilitating group arrivals and departures, coordinating with the admission supervisor on how to activate long lines and provide information for the waterfront. This function will alert the appropriate parties when encountering conditions that can lead to a negative guest experience when visiting the waterfront.
