As the leading museum for London, we tell the story of the world’s greatest city and its people – so why not make this the place to discover your story of London?

The Museum of London is currently looking at recruiting up to 3 exceptional individuals to play a key role in preparing its collections as it prepares to embark on a major capital project to build a new museum in the historic West Smithfield market building and relocate the museum’s collections to this new space.  Working alongside curators, registrars, conservators, collections care and documentation colleagues these posts will improve and expand collections information, build new digital assets and address documentation backlogs.

This is an exciting opportunity to work with the museum’s extensive collections. Working predominantly at the London Wall site you will be expected to carry out tasks with a high degree of accuracy and enjoy solving complex and challenging documentation issues whilst also being willing and able to record large amounts of data.  You will be highly organised and self-motivated with good attention to detail and the ability to prioritise your own workload. You will also be a committed team player and excellent communicator.

As well as having proven experience of working with collections and knowledge of museum documentation processes you will also have practical experience of using a museum collections management system, handling and packing objects as well as digital photography.

The closing date for applications is 30 August 2017 at 5pm. Interviews will be held on 13 and 14 September 2017.

The Museum of London is committed to equal opportunities and diversity.
