The Learning Programme Assistant will play a key role in keeping Manchester Museum’s incredible collection alive during the final year of their closure period, ensuring – through your amazing engagement skills – that they continue to inspire young people across the region.
You will also provide creative ideas and support testing of brand new programmes for our late 2022 reopening, in line with our values and mission and in collaboration with the Primary Learning Coordinator and other team members.
The Inflatable Museum will be one of your main ‘places’ of work. You will be responsible for packing it up safely and taking it out in our electric van to schools across the city where you will run fun and impactful workshops – both existing and newly-developed – alongside the Inflatable Museum Support Assistant.
They expect this aspect of the job to take 2-3 days per week. You will be responsible for following health and safety procedures to ensure the safety of yourself, others, resources and collection items. This will be particularly important when working off-site, where you will give safety briefings to school staff and pupils and will need to sensitively but firmly ensure procedures are followed.
There’ll be other opportunities too: to work with families and other audiences at events and festivals across the city using the outdoor Pop-Up Museum; to help us expand and refine online delivery via platforms such as Zoom; and to work inside the museum as they begin to reopen for piloting brand new programmes.
You’ll get involved in supporting all aspects of programmes with primary schools, including marketing and the e-newsletter, administering school object loan programmes, and some financial and bookings administration with the School Bookings Coordinator.
A driving license and willingness to drive the museum’s van are essential requirements for this post.
Full time £24,174 to £27,116 per annum, depending on relevant experience.
