Collections Officer - Community Engagement, Wakefield Museums and Castles


We are looking for a people person. An enthusiastic, personable and self-motivated individual with museum's collections development experience and strong networking skills.

The Collections Officer Community Engagement will work with a wide range of partners to forge strong links between Wakefield's museum service and the varied, developing and diverse communities and cultures across the whole of the Wakefield district.

The post holder will shape the direction of the collections so we collect, display and make more accessible material that is more representative of diversity within the Wakefield District and reflects local life as it is today.

Based at Wakefield Museum, but working across our museum and castle sites as well as district wide community venues, the post will organise and deliver consultation events that will engage a diverse range of audiences so that local people have a voice in how our collections are developed. They will also have strong collections management skills as this engagement will lead to new acquisitions and loans, and will influence future displays and exhibitions.

The post is full time, 37 hours a week, permanent.
