The Postal Museum is one of the newest and most exciting museum in London. We opened in 2017 and have already established the museum as a must-visit destination with award-winning experiences and marketing campaigns. Alongside hands-on exhibitions exploring over 500 years of British social and communications history, visitors can experience a subterranean ride through the tunnels of the old Post Office Underground Railway – Mail Rail. The museum welcomes over 160,000 visitors and our online content reaches almost a million users a year. We deliver award-winning learning, access and outreach programmes and provide unique experiences including popular Tunnel Walks under the streets of London. The museum also operates a children’s playspace – Sorted – popular with young families and schools. Alongside all this we offer one of the most unique venues in London for corporate hire and filming locations.                                                                                    

PURPOSE OF THE JOB

As Learning Facilitator (Schools and Early Years) you will deliver inclusive museum, virtual and outreach sessions for schools. In school term time you will prepare for, set up and receive full training to deliver inclusive learning experiences that make connections across the curriculum and support confident communication skills. In school holidays you support the delivery of family activities. There will be some weekend and occasional evening work supporting families, community and access programmes and special events.

Whilst you may have experience working in museums, it is not essential. You will have some experience of delivering engaging experiences for children of different ages. Your ability to facilitate engaging experiences is the focus. You will receive on-going training, including shadowing and supported delivery before you lead activities independently. Working as part of the Schools Team you will have the opportunity to explore the collections and discover how they can engage and inspire diverse schools and early years audiences.

You will work within the Exhibitions, Access and Learning team. Some weekend and occasional evening work will be required, and this will be notified and agreed in advance. Time off in lieu will be awarded in line with The Postal Museum’s policy.

The post-holder will also be expected to monitor and report on their work as directed by their line manager and adhere to office guidelines on handling, health and safety, lone working, etc., as advised, taking responsibility as appropriate.

As an employee of The Postal Museum, you will enjoy a wide range of benefits, including – but not limited to – a generous pension scheme, flexible working, cycle to work scheme and interest free season ticket loan.

The Postal Museum is absolutely committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their background. We value diversity and lived experience, and acknowledge the underrepresentation of people from certain backgrounds, both within our organisation and across the sector. We welcome applications from underrepresented groups, whether these be of ethnicity, gender, identity, religion, physical ability, sexual orientation or other
