Working in the Museum

The Museum is run on a day to day basis by a small management team led by a Director. This is supported by a large number of volunteers who give freely of their time. See the separate page on volunteering for details of what this involves.

We currently have the following job opportunity:

Maintenance Operative

Permanent part-time post

20 hours per week, £9,466 per annum

We wish to recruit an additional multi-skilled Maintenance Operative to join our busy Facilities team. The person will be required to deliver both planned and reactive maintenance within a visitor-facing environment. It is essential that candidates have a good all round basic knowledge and practical working experience of electrics, plumbing, carpentry and general building maintenance.

Ideally the candidate will also have some basic awareness of plant machinery, and be able to find practical solutions to maintenance problems.

You must be a good team player as you will be working with two other Maintenance Operatives and in conjunction with other departments in the Museum.

The Museum is a seven day operation, so our Maintenance Operatives are required to work weekends, bank holidays, and the occasional evening, on a rota basis.

There will be a requirement to provide maintenance cover off-site, for which travelling expenses will be paid. It is therefore essential that candidates hold a full driving licence.
