We seek an enthusiastic, well organised and creative museum worker to act as the project coordinator for Tees Valley Museums Group. We want a person who supports and understands the Creative Case For Diversity, has a passion for cultural access for all and an understanding that museums can contribute positively to all our lives.
Tees Valley Museum Group (TVMG) is a consortium of Local Authority Museums in the Tees Valley that has received funding from the Arts Council England (ACE) as a National Portfolio Organisation. Stockton Council is the lead authority within the consortium. The museums in the consortium are Preston Park Museum & Grounds - Stockton, Head of Steam Railway Museum - Darlington, Museum of Hartlepool & Hartlepool Art Gallery, Dorman Museum & Captain Cook Birthplace Museum – Middlesbrough and Kirkleatham Museum – Redcar.
The funding is secured up to 31st March 2022 but with an expectation of future funding that will allow TVMG to grow sustainably.
The TVMG seeks to utilise shared collections and resources of the partner museums to tell the stories of Tees Valley. To increase access to collections and museums within the consortium, to develop shared exhibition programming, to promote family learning and school learning and engage with our diverse communities. The consortium bases much of its work on developing shared best practice and will ensure that the Case for Cultural Diversity is made.
We seek to appoint a project coordinator to consolidate the different work streams that are being undertaken. The role will contribute to the delivery process of the different work steams including exhibition development, learning and improved access. The work will be carried out across the Tees Valley Museum Group. NPO work will contribute to and complement the existing work of museums within the consortium. The ability to travel to and work at different museum sites and locations across the consortium will be required.
In addition the role will work with the NPO manager, museum partners and NPO colleagues to secure additional funding.
A key element of this role will be the monitoring of budgets, contributing to reports for ACE including the NPO annual survey. As such a good understanding of how cultural work is evaluated will be needed.
The ideal candidate will be confident and able to understand and demonstrate the ability to work with partner organisations both internally within the consortium and externally. Crucial to the success of the role will be the ability to communicate effectively and the ability to work as a member of a team will be essential. The ideal candidate will also have a good knowledge and experience of museum work.
