Project Manager – Object Cataloging Project

The Project Manager leads a team of artifact catalogers who examine and describe artifacts to create an online database for a Museum in the Washington, DC area.  The work requires object description, object cataloging, research into object history and writing of donor biographies for inclusion in the Museum’s online catalog. The Project Manager trains staff, develops workflow procedures, provides original cataloging, reviews and edits all records and supervises staff responsible for cataloging a collection of thousands of museum artifacts in various materials.

The Project Manager will be expected to work closely with the client not only in the initial phase but throughout the duration of the project. The Project Manager will be the point of contact with the client and CORESTAFF Services and will be responsible for managing all aspects of the project.

  • Manage organization and workflow
  • Hire, train, and supervise catalogers
  • Perform quality assurance
  • Act as point of contact with client
  • Provide status updates to the client
