The Royal Air Force Museum is a national museum, a Government non-departmental public body (NDPB) and a registered charity, with two public sister sites at London and Cosford and a stored collection site near Stafford. RAF Museum Enterprises Ltd is the trading arm of the RAF Museum with all profits gift-aided to the Museum to support its charitable activities. Our purpose is to share the story of the Royal Air Force through its people and collections, to engage, inform and inspire our visitors. Our overall vision is to reach, connect and inspire everyone with the RAF story.

Having just completed a multimillion pound redevelopment project on site, there has never been a more exciting time to join our award-winning museum.

The Museum invites applications for the post of Access and Learning Assistant (Storytelling). The post holder will share the stories and experiences of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people of the Royal Air Force through performance and other creative responses, as well as delivering across the whole range of Access and Learning Department activities.

The post holder will deliver daily programmed activities, mainly for schools although there will be opportunities to work with families and other Museum audiences. In addition to delivering workshops for schools in a lively and imaginative way, the post holder will support the wider work of the department.

Applicants should have experience of working with children and an interest in history, STEM and other curriculum areas relevant to our collection. An enthusiastic and flexible approach is essential.

The post holder will be required to work 20 hours per week, 4 hours per day, on any 5 days out of the 7 day week, usually Monday to Friday.

The post is based at our London site but work at outreach venues (schools, community centres, libraries etc.) will be required. There is a requirement to work occasional weekends, bank holidays and evenings.
