Museum Search & Reference is focused on a singular task—finding the very best leadership
WITH MORE THAN A DECADE OF EXPERIENCE, WE HAVE SUCCESSFULLY PLACED DOZENS OF MUSEUM DIRECTORS, CURATORS, EDUCATORS AND OTHER TOP TALENT.
What We Do
Museum Search & Reference was founded by Marilyn Hoffman, the Principal of Museum Search & Reference. Marilyn’s 18 years as a museum director uniquely prepared her to create an executive search firm solely dedicated to the museum field. Museum Search & Reference has successfully placed candidates in a wide variety of museums, large and small, in large cities as well as small communities.
Our team of former museum and non-profit directors know the museum field inside out. We know the nuts and bolts of executive leadership, and the challenges of today’s job market. We are here to help.
Finding new leadership for museums is one part of the challenge. Finding the right leaders with vision to match the goals and aspirations of those museums is what distinguishes Museum Search & Reference.
We actively recruit for talent, experience, and diversity.
Museum Search & Reference has been successfully placing candidates at museums across North America since 2005. We work with candidates on behalf of our clients through a vetting process that is confidential, respectful, and flexible. We invite your inquiry about any of our open searches.
Museums in the 21st Century are so much more than object repositories. They are the new community center, offering entertainment and education around authentic ideas about humankind and civilization. Museums are loaded with great ideas, discoveries and questions about who we are.
Museum Search & Reference welcomes your interest in our open positions, and we also encourage you to let us know if you would like to be placed on our contact list for future openings that may be of interest to you. Your inquiry is kept confidential and your contact information will not be shared with anyone.
