Borough of Poole Museum seeks a creative heritage professional to project manage the delivery of the Wessex 5 Partnership project
Poole Museum Service is the lead Partner of the Wessex 5 Partnership of museums. The other Partners are Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum (Bournemouth), Dorset County Museum (Dorchester), Salisbury Museum and Wiltshire Museum (Devizes).
In March 2015 the Partnership was awarded £473,704 from the Arts Council England Museum Resilience Fund to carry out a two-year project to enhance the resilience of the Partner museums. In addition to the Partners’ individual fundraising and governance work, the project will focus on the development of collaborative working, learning and sharing through a Partnership strategy and cultural tourism and exhibition work.
A key role in the programme is that of the Project Manager, who is being recruited for the lifetime of the project to ensure its effective delivery and to work directly on Poole’s workstream. The successful applicant will work two days a week at Poole Museum and travel to Partner museums and elsewhere as required.
We are looking for a resourceful person with great heritage management, administrative and communication skills who will work with Poole’s Museum and Arts Manager to ensure that this is a landmark project for museums in Dorset and Wiltshire.
This is a temporary employment until 31st March 2017, based at Poole Museum.
