Working with the Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority (PAHSMA) offers exciting career and employment opportunities. During our peak summer season December – April, we advertise fixed term, casual and seasonal vacancies in positions ranging from tourism operations and guiding at our three World Heritage-listed sites – Port Arthur, Coal Mines and the Cascades Female Factory – to jobs in hospitality, visitor services, conservation, administration, retail, and maintenance.

We value every member of our team, and warmly welcome new staff. We offer a friendly, stimulating and enjoyable working environment, and we invest in our people with high quality training and support. Our pre-employment programs provide nationally-recognised training in guiding, hospitality and tourism, and are offered free of charge each year in partnership with the Skills Institute.
