Programme Assistant

Circa £17,000
Fixed term contract (two years)

Are you looking for an administrative role within a dynamic organisation?

PHM is the national museum of democracy, telling the story of its development in Britain: past, present, and future.  The museum provides opportunities for people of all ages to learn about, be inspired by and get involved in ideas worth fighting for; ideas such as equality, social justice, co-operation, and a fair world for all.  PHM offers a powerful programme with annual themes; 2018 looks at representation and commemorates 100 years since the first women and all men got the vote, and 2019 will see a year of activities around protest movements to mark the bicentenary of the Peterloo Massacre in Manchester, 1819.

The museum is seeking a highly organised, confident communicator with an interest in cultural learning to join the Programme Team as Programme Assistant.

The Programme Assistant is often the first point of contact for a broad range of education and community groups, and other visitors enquiring about our programme of exhibitions, events and learning activities.  The successful candidate will work closely with the Learning Officers and Programme Officers using strong administrative skills to support the co-ordination and delivery of a busy programme.

For enquires relating to the post, please contact Charlie Corkin, Executive Support Officer at or 0161 838 9190.
