|Learning and Community Engagement Officer (Maternity cover)|
This is an exciting time for Petersfield Museum as it begins a major expansion programme. We are seeking a Learning and Community Engagement Officer for maternity cover. We would expect the successful candidate to be able to start from 26th June 2017.
The purpose of this role is to continue and extend the established, successful education and outreach programme aimed at schools and community organisations. This includes working on our HLF projects and supporting the Curator in their role when needed.
This is a full-time position (37.5 hours/week) to cover maternity leave, and includes working one in two Saturdays (between
April – end of November). Additionally, occasional work will be needed outside of normal working hours, including evenings, for which time can be taken off in lieu.
Petersfield Museum encompasses the Museum and the Flora Twort Gallery. The Museum
tells the history of the town and the surrounding villages through artefacts, documents,
photographs and oral history. It is in the Old Courthouse. In addition to its annually changing
main display, it also has small temporary exhibition space which changes three times a year.
Also in the Old Courthouse is the Community Gallery, where artists, local groups and schools
exhibit their work.
The Flora Twort Gallery is in the Police Station at present and has our Bedales Historic Dress
collection on annual display, as well as work by the local artist Flora Twort.
We have an education programme for schools and regular adult education events in
addition to our work with community groups. We are a committed team of four paid staff
members and about 45 volunteers.
