Job vacancy: Museum Operations Manager

In 2020, the Migration Museum is making an exciting move, for at least nine months, to a large retail unit in south-east London, enabling us to bring our offer to new, mass audiences.

This move opens up the brand new role of Museum Operations Manager – a key member of staff that we now require in order to deliver a first-class museum in our new venue.

This is an exciting opportunity for a flexible, approachable, practical organiser with excellent communication skills and plenty of initiative who will have overall responsibility for the practical management and smooth running of our new venue.

As well as having a down to earth, hands-on approach, the post-holder will also be a highly effective ambassador for the Migration Museum, both with members of the public and with key stakeholders.  The Museum Operations Manager will be a key public-facing member of the museum’s front-of-house team, responsible for engaging daily with a wide cross-section of people, requiring a confident, welcoming manner, with the ability to be authoritative if required. A key aspect of this new role will be regularly reporting back to the Migration Museum team to ensure that successes are noted and that challenges and areas for improvement are appropriately and swiftly addressed.

This role is 5 days per week (Wednesday to Sunday) for eight months, starting in mid-February 2020
