Director of Operations, Remai Modern


Remai Modern is a new museum of modern and contemporary art in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The museum presents and collects local and international modern and contemporary art that connects, inspires, and challenges diverse audiences through equitable and accessible programs. Our award-winning building features 11 gallery spaces, a 150-seat theatre, a gift store, a restaurant, outdoor terraces, and rooms with stunning views of the South Saskatchewan River. We provide a Canadian and Saskatchewan perspective on global modern and contemporary art movements through a mix of regional, national and international programs.

Remai Modern’s new building was designed for transformative experiences. The museum’s spaces were thoughtfully developed for art and people, recognizing that both are variable and unpredictable. From its placement on the riverbanks, Remai Modern connects architecturally with a Prairie Modern style and responds to the low, flat topography of the landscape.

This integral position will manage a diverse team and portfolio of the museum’s commercial operations including visitor and retail services, facility and event rentals, and the contracted food and beverage relationship. They will also oversee the facility’s asset management and contracted services portfolio, which includes building maintenance and capital projects.

As a member of the senior leadership team, the Director of Operations will leverage their knowledge and understanding of what is needed to provide a best-in-class experience.

The successful candidate will have progressive experience at the leadership level in an events venue bridging commercial and asset management operations. The ideal candidate is entrepreneurial and community orientated, capable of honest engagement with a broad range of demographics, and committed to promoting the core concepts of equity, diversity, and inclusion. With demonstrated experience and achievement in effective collaboration and team leadership, this individual will contribute to the success and sustainability of the Remai Modern, ensuring it fulfills its mandate to enable transformative experiences by connecting art with local and global communities.
