Royal Museums Greenwich is home to the National Maritime Museum, Royal Observatory Greenwich, Peter Harrison Planetarium, the Queen’s House art gallery, the Cutty Sark, and the Prince Philip Maritime Collections Centre. Together our sites tell epic stories of sea and space exploration, pioneering architecture, art and British history. And, right now, we’re looking for an innovative, imaginative and well-organised individual to join our Learning and Interpretation team.
We’re proud to deliver a dynamic, audience led programme in a truly spectacular learning environment. Our extensive collection of over 2 million maritime objects, paintings, photographs and archives span all aspects of maritime history, while many relate to culturally and historically contested and sensitive subject areas like trans-Atlantic slavery and the expansion of British trade with Asia. Your challenge will be to design and facilitate learning experiences that create relevance for adult audiences in meaningful ways.
Day-to-day, you’ll work across department, including research and collections, to deliver vibrant, inclusive and sustainable revenue generating and grant funded programmes of activities. We’ll also rely on you to build on established stakeholder relationships and initiate new partnerships to create access for a diverse range of adult learners. An exciting opportunity to collaborate with the Learning and Interpretation team and wider museum departments, together you’ll maximise opportunities to deliver a dynamic range of learning offerings.
As a creative adult learning specialist, you have what it takes to come up with learning experiences that have relevance for adult audiences in meaningful ways. Indeed, you have a strong commitment to producing programmes that champion multiple perspectives, platform diverse narratives and draw contemporary relevance. You’re also used to managing a budget and working in museums/cultural venues and/or with learning stakeholders. Establishing and sustaining strategic partnerships comes naturally to you too, as does writing and producing promotional materials. What’s more, you have experience of successful income generation and fundraising and a good understanding of the Further and Higher Education sector.
