Job Opportunity: Tullie House

Curatorial Trainee (Archaeology)
Salary £18070, (37 hours)
Fixed Term 2 years

Purpose of the Role

Thanks to generous funding from the Headley Trust, Tullie House is able to offer a 2-year curatorial traineeship working with our nationally important archaeology collections. The core purpose of this role is to provide the post-holder, through on-the-job training, with the skills and experience to effectively curate and manage a large and varied archaeology collection.

The archaeology collection at Tullie consists of more than 12,000 man-made objects dating from 10,000 BC to the late medieval period. As such it provides an important record of the human history of Cumbria and beyond. While the breadth of the collection alone makes it an exciting prospect to work with, specific holdings further highlight its archaeological importance. Examples include significant Roman collections from ancient Carlisle and the western end of Hadrian’s Wall, material from the famous prehistoric Langdale Axe Factory, excellently preserved Roman and medieval wood and leather, and important finds from the Viking burial site at Cumwhitton.

As part of this role, you will play an active part in the day-to-day life of the curatorial department, focusing on our British archaeology collections. This will include collections management, display and exhibitions, and public engagement. You will also have the opportunity to support work in other areas of the museum, including learning, outreach, events, fundraising, visitor experience and marketing. You will have regular CPD and training opportunities, both inhouse and external. You will be supported by a mentor and a line manager, who will work with you to develop suitable projects and training.
