Job Opportunity: The Huntarian, Glasgow

Position Type – Full Time
Salary Range – Negotiable depending on experience

Job Purpose

The Hunterian is a world-class museum collection that contributes to the University’s success through enhancing teaching and research opportunities and through its cultural impact on the local, national and international community.

The Director of The Hunterian is responsible for establishing and implementing The Hunterian’s strategy, for leading and motivating staff to deliver excellent outcomes, for managing The Hunterian’s human, physical and financial resources to best effect, and for maximising the impact The Hunterian has on students, on staff and on the wider community.

This is an exciting time for the University of Glasgow. Recent years have seen improved performance in Teaching and Research and a growing international reputation, and the University is embarking now on a major programme of campus development. The Hunterian is an important part of this. In September 2016, a first phase of development at Kelvin Hall (KH1) saw the creation of a new Hunterian Collections Study Centre, as part of a strategic partnership with Glasgow City Council and the National Library of Scotland, enabling a major expansion in research, teaching and training around museum collections at all levels. The partners (who now include the National Galleries of Scotland) are now working towards a full-scale redevelopment of the Kelvin Hall (KH2) that would allow the main Hunterian collection to be rehoused there, in state of the art accommodation, and in close proximity to the Glasgow’s main civic collection at Kelvingrove. The Director will be expected to lead The Hunterian’s strategy for the Kelvin Hall, ensuring the success of KH1, and – in close partnership with the KH2 vision partners and the University’s KH2 development board – developing a successful implementation and fundraising strategy for KH2.
