Manager, Musée océanographique de Monaco

Manager, Musée océanographique de Monaco

The manager of the aquarium division will drive its future development and take it to state of the art world standards in terms of visitor experience.

The ideal candidate would typically come from a managerial position in an aquarium, zoo, nature park, museum, theme park etc and have a deep interest in marine life.  This position is as much about managing people, projects and processes as it is about managing living creatures.
