Digital Change Manager - permanent

This is an exciting opportunity to advocate for the role that digital technologies can play in transforming a heritage charity's delivery. As the dedicated Museum Service for Northumberland County, the service comprises of buildings born well in advance of the digital age. As the Charity rises to the challenge of our newly acquired National Portfolio Organisational Status, our responsibilities as an Accredited Museum Service and grapples with the changes to Data Protection Legislation, we need to be skilled in the art of data collection and fully capitalise on the opportunities presented by CRM and EPOS systems. In addition, we need to reform the way that we relate to our audiences, offering multiple routes for engagement and, increasingly, making the most of marketing opportunities presented by social media. This is an all-encompassing role that will revolutionise the way that our charity uses digital technologies.

Curator of Mining Culture - permanent

This is an exciting opportunity to completely rethink collecting practice at Woodhorn Charitable Trust. At the Woodhorn Museum, formally an operational colliery, and part of the largest pit village in the world, we are the custodians of an incredible collection which comprises a Scheduled Ancient Monument, several Grade I listed Colliery Buildings, and the work of the internationally renowned Ashington Group (also known as the 'Pitman Painters'). Working with curatorial colleagues at our Museums in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Hexham and Morpeth, you will be part of instigating best practice collections development across our organisation and ensuring that our communities play an active role in shaping our collections practice. As a new National Portfolio Organisation and a Creative People and Places Project, there will be exciting opportunities to work both nationally and internationally to ensure that our collections are at the heart of a wide array of artistic outputs. As an Accredited Museum Service, maintaining high standards of collections care and documentation and facilitating community involvement will also be a key area of priority. As the collections covers Art, Social History, Technology, Geology and Science, we are looking for a Curator who is not afraid of the multi-disciplinary and is keen to develop innovative approaches to community-led contemporary collecting.
