The job itself

The museum service of East Riding of Yorkshire Council is participating in an Arts Council of England funded National Partner Organisation project (with its partners in the Humber Museum Partnership –Hull and North Lincs).

As part of the NPO project, East Riding Museums wishes to recruit an Assistant Curator.

The assistant curator will assist with major, regional Humber Museum Partnership Creative Case for Diversity projects such as the North Wolds Engagement project which aims to engage the rurally dispersed people of the North Wolds (between Beverley and Bridlington in the East Riding) with our collections and the museums service in general. We aim to collect the stories, oral histories, objects and images of the people of the North Wolds. Much of the work will involve working with people from Protected Characteristic groups and will involve workshops, talks, seminars, object handling sessions, touring exhibitions for libraries/mobile libraries. The post holder would be line managed by Dr Marchant Chair of the Collections Team working group but would also work closely with Learning Officers and Archivists.

Postholder would spend approximately two days a week collecting and evaluating performance data on East Riding Museums Service delivery for the NPO project working with the museum’s team NPO Project Manager on this task.
