Mystic Aquarium, which was founded in 1973, is home to thousands of marine mammals, fish, invertebrates and reptiles central to its marine conservation, research and education mission. Visitors to its 18+ acre campus are transported to shorelines of the Arctic; North America’s Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific coastal waters; and to tropical and other marine ecosystems in ways that bring into focus global concerns about how we treat our planet and its marine inhabitants.

The Aquarium has an annual budget of $25m, 250 full-time staff and 600 volunteers. It is a member of the alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums (AMMPA), an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), and enjoys outstanding local, national and international partnerships with premier educational and academic research institutions.

The Director of Human Resources–a member of the managment team tasked with ensuring that the mission, values and culture of the organization are upheld, and that staff cohesion and camaraderie are advanced–will lead all HR functions. These include recruitment and on-boarding; training and career development; employee relations and recognition; reviews and assessments; termination and exit interviews; and legal matters as they intersect with HR matters.
