Lowewood Museum are seeking to appoint two energetic and experienced project officers with a track record of success to lead up and deliver the Your Heritage, Your Museum project over the next three years. This programme is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF).
The Your Heritage, Your Museum project focuses on local heritage across the Borough of Broxbourne, positioning Lowewood 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.
We are looking to recruit two positions:
Museum Project Manager. Full-time (37.5hours per week). £30k per annum.
This is a full- time post and is being offered on a fixed term contract for three years, funded by NLHF, and local partners through the Your Heritage, Your Museum project. The Museum Project Manager will be responsible for managing the project, reporting to the Client Project Group, ensuring the key outcomes agreed with NLHF are successfully delivered. The Museum Project Manager will be based at Lowewood Museum.
Community Engagement Officer. Part-time (22.5 hours per week). £15k per annum.
This is a part time post and is being offered on a fixed term contract for three years, funded by NLHF, and local partners through the Your Heritage – Your Museum project.
