Job: Head of Exhibitions and Interpretation / National Science and Media Museum / closes 10 October

At the National Science and Media Museum, striving to develop our digital collections as a leader in the interpretation and impact of sound and light technologies on human life, we are currently in the midst of a 5-million pound 'Masterplan' project which will ignite a new sense of curiosity for our diverse audiences, seeing new gallery spaces and our exhibition range transformed.

In order to lead the ongoing delivery of our broad range of exhibitions and events, we are looking for a creative, innovative and strategic leader to join us at the Musuem, in Bradford, in a newly created role of Head of Exhibitions and Interpretation, on a permanent basis.

In this role, you will lead a dedicated and driven team of colleagues across exhibitions, content development and interpretation, ensuring our collections and knowledge are shared through story-led, innovative, visitor-focussed design. 

As part of the Museum Senior Management Team, you will interpret information, support the design of narrative and deliver unique gallery content throughout the museum and beyond, collaborating with colleagues to bring our curatorial voice to life and ensure authenticity of the stories we tell.  

Joining us, you will have excellent leadership skills and experience of managing and developing a team, budgets and creating genuine opportunities through creative collaboration. You will bring unparalleled experience of using interpretive methodology and audience focussed data to deliver creative projects for museum exhibitions, galleries or interactive public spaces. You will also be a strong communicator and skilled influencer, able to work positively and proactively with internal and external stakeholders.

You will be offered excellent benefits, including 27 days annual leave in addition to bank holidays, flexibility with work (including the ability to work from home and agile start/finish times), a contributory pension scheme, BUPA medical and dental care, an interest free loan offer and numerous staff discounts whilst developing your career in a world class museum group.
