Here at People’s History Museum (PHM), we welcome a local, national, and international audience and our visitors are firmly at the heart of everything we do.  We are passionate about the contribution our Visitor Experience Team makes in ensuring all visitors have an interesting, stimulating, engaging visit that inspires them to get involved with and explore ideas worth fighting for.  This is an exciting opportunity to join our dynamic Visitor Experience Team and gain hands-on and varied front –of house experience, spanning visitor engagement, events, operations, learning and retail.

The team of nine, plus the Operations Manager, are also central to the museum’s day –to day public facing work, including looking after the building, working with colleagues throughout the museum, supporting the Engagement Team with learning activities and tours, helping the Venue Hire Team with events, and assisting the Head of Development with running the museum shop.

PHM prides itself on being a welcoming and inclusive organisation, profoundly committed to advancing equality and diversity in the broadest sense.  We highly value the benefits that diverse perspectives bring to PHM’s mission.

We recognise the museum currently underrepresents people of colour, disabled people, LGBTQI+ people and those with intersecting identities in our workforce; PHM is actively working to address this and encourages applications from these backgrounds.  While the successful candidate will be selected purely on merit, in the event of a tie between two candidates with equal experience, we may select a candidate who helps us better represent the communities the museum serves.
