Museum seeks Learning and Access Officer

09 May 2017
A vacancy has arisen for this dynamic post at the Scottish Fisheries Museum

The Museum is seeking an outgoing, dynamic person for the post of Learning and Access Officer.  

In recent years the museum has focussed on developing and delivering an exciting programme of educational activities. Central to these have been developing new ways to engage children, young adults and adult learners in regular activities at the Museum. The Museum continues to deliver its programme to schools with specifically-developed teachers’ resource packs and, with the support of volunteers, to provide guided tours. 

However, there is great potential to further build on existing resources, maximise opportunities through partnership working, both within the museum community and with external agencies, and to develop interesting new opportunities.

The post-holder would be responsible for realising the full potential of the Recognised Collections as a learning resource to engage and inspire people of all ages and interests, in partnership with the curatorial team. Line management would be to the Curator, also working with the Assistant Curators and volunteers.

Closing Date for Applications : Monday 29th May
