OPPORTUNITIES FOR EMPLOYMENT AND VOLUNTEERING
Our exciting project will have opportunities for employment and to help us as a volunteer. We are currently seeking additional Trustees. Details below. We are always seeking volunteers to get involved so please contact us if you would like to help.
We are now seeking new Trustees “passionate about our heritage”
As the date draws near for work to start on remodelling and modernising Aldeburgh Museum following our national lottery award, the Trustees are seeking to recruit three new members to broaden the Board’s expertise and help shape the Museum’s future.
While the Board says that all applicants are welcome it has targeted the areas of community outreach and education, fundraising and development, and heritage conservation as the preferred candidates’ skills and background.
The posts are unpaid and voluntary, and require a commitment of around two days a month including attending Board meetings which are held in the 16th century Moot Hall which houses the Museum.
The Trustees’ chairman, Tony Bone, said that it is an exciting and exceptional time to join the Museum’s Board. “Soon after the New Year, work will begin to remodel the Museum, improve the presentation of the collections, and modernise the layout and facilities, ready for opening in May next year for the 2019 season”.
Updating on progress since the Heritage Lottery Fund award, he said: “We have been busy finalising the details of the work ahead, and appointing contractors. So, this is an important moment for anyone who is keen to become involved in the governance and decision-making of the Museum and to make a difference now and in the longer term."
“We are looking for people with energy, creativity and some free time. Above all, they must be passionate about our heritage and committed to the Museum’s success”.
He continued: “As well as the Museum regeneration work we have an ambitious programme of community activities to launch in the Spring and have just appointed a Volunteer Activity and Development officer to manage this and to train our volunteers.
He confirmed that a key part of the regeneration and modernising work will be the imminent appointment of a contractor to create a new, digital aspect to the presentation of the collections, and to introduce space-saving and engaging techniques to bring virtual reality to Aldeburgh’s rich history and culture. A further workstream will be the re-launching of the Museum’s website.
