This is an exciting opportunity to join our small and dynamic team at The Museum of East Asian Art. You will be passionate about working with people, leading and supporting volunteers, and helping us meet our vision of connecting cultures and challenging perceptions.
You will be responsible for managing and delivering the volunteer programme and dedicated to making sure our volunteers feel valued, and that we are doing everything we can to recruit, train and support volunteers so that they get the most out of their time with us.
Our volunteers support us in multiple roles including Front of House, Gallery Guides, Meet & Greeters and through remote Micro-Volunteering and Social Media opportunities. Many volunteers have been with us for a long time and go on to become Friends of the Museum benefitting from exclusive visits and events. All volunteers and Friends have an interest in, or connection with, East Asia.
Alongside the volunteer programme you will manage the Friends of the Museum and, as a key member of the Audience Engagement Team, will work closely with the Marketing & Events Manager and Learning Manager to develop and deliver the Museum’s events programme and drive our goal of ‘more people visiting the Museum more often’. You will be digitally savvy and have experience of working with social media to engage audiences.
The Museum encourages initiative and, through a culture of team-working and inclusivity, we support each other in different ways to deliver our vision of connecting cultures and challenging perceptions through an excellent engagement experience.
As we emerge from the pandemic we are embarking on an exciting new project to reimaging how to become more relevant and resilient as a Museum in a changed world. The Reimagining Project will explore how we use all the spaces and resources within our Museum more effectively. You will be very much part of this adventure which will mean new ways of thinking and working to enable us to continue to deliver a vibrant, relevant and engaging experience.
