Do you understand good customer service, love museums and have the passion and motivation to keep learning?
If the answer is yes, then Norfolk Museums Service wants to hear from you.
As part of our award winning Teaching Museum programme we are offering 8 Traineeships as a stepping stone into the world of heritage and museums. These starter posts are offered on a 12 months fixed term contract from April 2018 at a salary of £16,781. A range of traineeships is on offer providing the opportunity to work with museums and their collections: handling, documenting, interpreting and caring for objects/artefacts to bring them to life for visitors, through displays, events and social media.
No museum experience is required and there is no age limit. Norfolk Teaching Museum Traineeships combine a job with a training programme delivered by museum professionals who are experts in their field. You will be supported to carry out the duties and responsibilities of your job. The traineeship will equip you with the skills, knowledge and experience to pursue a career in the museum sector. You must have experience of working in a public-facing, customer service type role, have a demonstrable interest in museums and finding work in the sector and be qualified to level 3. We want to appoint a cohort of trainees who will never stop learning, people with inquisitive minds and lots of ideas, who can act with integrity, demonstrate their excellent communication skills and have the enthusiasm and understanding to make every visitor feel valued.
Norfolk Museums Service is an equal opportunities employer which values diversity and welcomes applicants from all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from sections of the community which are currently under represented, including BAME and applicants with disabilities.
Before you apply we would like you to find out more about this opportunity. You can do this by watching the briefing film or attending a session at Norwich Castle on Saturday 9 December. Places are limited and once they are filled bookings will close. After the briefing you will be sent the link to the application pack and form.
