Job Opportunities

Consultant/Tender Opportunity – Abergavenny Museum and Castle, Wales

Monmouthshire County Council would like to commission a feasibility study to gain a fuller understanding of the potential for events in both Abergavenny Castle grounds and within the museum building. This would include extensive community and local business consultation to ensure that any events complement rather than compete with the existing local offer and have a sustainable legacy.

Other elements will include: Drawing together existing tool kits to develop a site specific and locally focussed events tool kit, suggestions on how a potential covered structure can be used specifically to generate income, a cost guide relating to any recommended minor improvements that would be required to run the recommended events, a scale of charges, budget guidelines/costs, an events evaluation template and a costed marketing strategy to include preparation of appropriate publicity material. Applications close 20 March and you need to complete an expression of interest form in the first instance Consultant/Tender opportunity – Abergavenny Museum and Castle, Wales

Collaborative Curator – Ripon Museums

With the help of the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are purchasing most of the Workhouse site in Ripon. This will include the existing museum footprint, the garden and grounds and the main block, which is known as Sharow View. The building is in reasonable condition and has many of the original features of the Workhouse period (including the double staircases so that different classes of inmates wouldn’t have to interact) intact. To bring it into full museum use in the future will require a major refurbishment. However, it can be used almost immediately to trial museum uses within. The building is pretty much a blank canvass, ready for interpreting as part of the museum offer. Through internal and external stakeholder engagement and delivery of a pilot programme, the project will develop an agreed strategy for the Sharow View site. This strategy will form the basis of our future funding applications and will focus on matching curatorial integrity, public engagement and sustainability to show the best approach to utilising the site. Applications close 22 March. Collaborative Curator – Ripon Museums
