Organisation:     Chartwell - National Trust
Salary:     £18,000 p.a.
Type:     Part-Time Position (22.5 hrs per week)
 Contract: fixed term - 36 months

Job Description:
It’s an exciting time at Chartwell. We’re about to start implementing our “Churchill’s Chartwell” project, a project to reinvigorate the way we engage with our visitors, and now we need a Curator with creative flair and imagination to help us research and develop ideas for delivering new interpretation, in order to provide cutting edge visitor experiences for current and future generations to come.

Its 50 years since the National Trust was asked to look after Chartwell. Now, more than ever, we need to inspire generations of visitors, to connect with the family home of one of our greatest ever leaders. We want to ensure that Churchill stays relevant, through the ways we move, teach and inspire people through engagement and story-telling.

Chartwell is a prestigious property, and it’s important to our visitors and members, but we want to continue to engage with new audiences, so that we can continue to engage future audiences with one of the most important figures in British history, Churchill himself.

As the Curator for the project, you’ll lead the research into the history of the house, grounds and our world class collection, to reach out to new audiences, making Churchill relevant to an entirely new audience, whilst remaining important to those already engaged with his story.

Based at Chartwell, but working as part of the Trust’s regional Consultancy hub in Scotney Castle, you’ll provide an important bridge between our property team and regional and central specialists, ensuring that the very best curatorial and conservation knowledge and advice is applied to Churchill’s Chartwell: inside and outdoors.

Critically, you’ll be responsible for conducting research and leading volunteer research, which will feed into an innovative, multi-channelled interpretation programme at Chartwell and ensuring our unique Spirit of Place is embedded into everything that we do. You will also recruit and lead two Historic Trainees posts and ensure that research is inputted into our collection database system CMS.

There are 14 work-streams in the project from volunteer training to interpreting our inscribed book collection. You will be involved in all the work-streams, some of them you will be the work stream lead and others you will be an active member of the delivery team.

About you

In order to be successful in this role, you’ll need to have:

• Strong experience of curation and care of collections
• Knowledge of, and interest in Winston Churchill’s history and legacy
• The ability to research, and translate your findings creatively into the visitor experience
• Up to date knowledge and understanding of the latest visitor experience ideas
• The ability to work as a part of a team, alongside curators in the region
• Excellent planning and project skills, working as part of a project team
• The ability to work across departments, working with visitor experience team, to develop into exciting offer for the whole property
• An excellent understanding of how to engage with a variety of audiences
• Experience of leading volunteers and staff.
