The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 is looking for a director — and being a good fundraiser is a prerequisite.

The job pays between $169,900 and $199,900 per year, according to a notice of vacancy released on Saturday.

The federal government took over Pier 21 last November to promote better understanding of the immigration experience in Canada. Thousands of immigrants made their first landfall in Canada at the customs shed on the Halifax waterfront.

According to the job posting: "Experience in financial management and revenue generation through fundraising and establishing collaborative relationships is required."

No date has been posted indicating when the new director will be appointed.
