Job Description:
Visitor Experience Curator
RHS Garden Wisley, Woking Surrey
circa £50,000 depending on experience
Five in seven contract 37.5 hours per week
Permanent

Would you like to play a central role in ensuring RHS Wisley’s future? Do you have extensive proven experience of leading programming and engagement activities in a dynamic customer focused environment?

The RHS is looking for an experienced and innovative individual to fill this newly created role of Visitor Experience Curator; to connect and coordinate three well-established functions in a planned way. They will be responsible for developing and implementing the programme of events, activities and exhibitions to enhance visitor experience and understanding of the art, science and practice of horticulture. They will lead and unite all the on-site visitor experience and engagement teams: Education and Learning, Events and Interpretation at Wisley.

This role will develop and deliver new ways for visitors to engage with and access our collections and history to help inspire everyone to grow by curating a rolling programme of exhibitions and activities that will help diverse audiences connect with previously inaccessible aspects of the RHS heritage through collections, science, education and visitor programmes and activities.

The role is both practical and strategic and will develop as the programme develops. The position will encourage practical delivery of creative and inclusive programming. There will be some freedom for experimentation but we are seeking someone with practical experience and track record for programming and delivering, as well as seeking out opportunities to facilitate access for diverse audiences to engage with wider Wisley learning programmes. Listening, research, monitoring and evaluation will be as integral to this role as practical development and delivery.

As a member of the senior management team this role will work closely with the Head of Site and the Garden Curator, as well as teams from across the organisation.
The successful candidate will most likely have experience of working in a museum or similar environment. They will be proactive, able to work with limited supervision, multi task, and work under pressure to meet tight deadlines. They will have excellent organisation and planning skills along with the ability to deal tactfully and confidently with all levels of staff, VIPs and visitors.

Safeguarding
The RHS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk and expects all personnel to share this commitment.
