Lowewood Museum Trust CIO are seeking to appoint an energetic and experienced project officer with a track record of success to help deliver the Your Heritage, Your Museum project’; a three year project due to conclude in March 2025.
This is a part time post and is being offered on a fixed term contract to 31 March 2025, although with the possibility of extension. It is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) and local partners through the Your Heritage – Your Museum project. Working closely with the Museum Project Manager you will have a pivotal role in implementing and delivering community outreach activity across the Borough that enables people to explore and celebrate their heritage.
The Your Heritage, Your Museum project focuses on local heritage across the Borough, positioning the Museum as a community, cultural and heritage hub through a three -year programme of outreach activity that aims to engage the diverse range of communities from Waltham Cross in the south to Hoddesdon at the northern end of the Borough discovering and celebrating their local heritage. It will be taken forward through development of a series of locally generated exhibitions and pop -up events, virtual trails, way marking for example, from which we aim to recruit a team of ‘Community Curators’ to redefine the Museum galleries to tell local stories, past and present as a dynamic offering, replacing the dated static displays, with greater relevancy to today.

Closing date for applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 24 August 2022
