Job Description:
Museum Director of The Stirling Smith

Due to the retiral of the current job holder, we are seeking a Museum Director for The Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum.

The Stirling Smith has played a special role in the history of Stirling since its foundation in 1874. The Institution was founded at the bequest of local artist Thomas Stuart Smith (1815-1869) and its remarkable collections tell the story of Stirling, which was so often pivotal to Scotland, and how its sons and daughters have made global contributions to society, the arts and technology.

It’s a unique cultural institution hosting artefacts and paintings of Stirling of local, national and international importance (e.g. the world’s oldest football (1540), the world’s oldest curling stone (1511) and the Stirling Jug (1457)) and all from a building of architectural significance. The organisation also provides invaluable educational programmes to the local community, plays host to a wide range of community groups, and benefits from incredible public support from the ‘Friends of the Smith’, Stirling Council and other community partners.

The Museum Director would be remitted with taking forward this culturally significant organisation through the implementation of The Stirling Smith vision. It’s a hidden gem with ambitious plans for the future, including further raising its profile across Scotland and beyond, strengthening its sustainability, further diversifying its service offering and developing the building.

The ideal candidate will have Museum or Art Gallery management experience and a well-developed understanding of the cultural scene across Scotland. You will be an inspirational and dynamic leader and communicator with a strong track record of delivery of projects, exhibitions and events on time and on budget to a high quality. You will also be a highly effective networker and manager of people and relationships who is comfortable with communities, public and political leaders and private sector and creative or cultural sector partners. The successful candidate will be commercially aware and committed to continuing the legacy of this unique cultural institution.
