The Cromwell Museum Trust is seeking an experienced Curator to lead the Cromwell Museum into the future. Working with a committed volunteer team, the Board of Trustees and stakeholders both local and national, the curator will manage the museum to create a unique and vibrant museum experience for the people of and visitors to Huntingdon.
The Cromwell Museum, housed in the former school attended by both Oliver Cromwell and Samuel Pepys in the market town of Huntingdon, is one of the most significant museums in England. The collection of material and artefacts relating to Oliver Cromwell is unparalleled. With items such as his hat, sword and medicine chest and the most famous portraits of the man and his contemporaries, its collection is perhaps more famous than the museum.
The governance of the museum was transferred to the Cromwell Museum Trust in 2015 from Cambridgeshire County Council and the Trust is developing a long-term strategy for the museum, its collections and its audiences. Support for the museum is strong and our ambitions are high and we are looking for a Curator/Museum Manager to help lead this important museum into a successful future.
To apply please send a current CV and covering letter (no more than 2 sides of A4) to Camilla Nichol by 5pm Thursday 30th November 2017. Please mark your email with the subject Cromwell Museum Application.
Interviews will be held on the 14th December in Huntingdon.
