  Job Description
Christ Church is now offering a three year, fixed-term post of Curatorial Assistant to the Curator of the Gallery. It is designed as a post for someone in the early stages of a career in museums and invites applications from suitably experienced candidates. The role offers attractive on-the-job training with insights in all aspects of museum work.

This full-time (37.5 hours) fixed-term post has been designed as an early career development post, intended specifically to provide a time-limited period of training and development, balancing clerical, practical and research work. The Curatorial Assistant will work closely with the Curator of the Picture Gallery and assist her in the day-to-day running of this prestigious gallery. Please note that this is a highly practical role and is an introduction to the administration and managerial side of museum work. It is not a dedicated research post. Due to the nature of this post the contract will not be extended beyond the 3-year fixed term.
  Required Skills / Qualifications
The ideal candidate will be educated to degree level in a relevant subject (History of Art, History, Museum Studies etc.) and familiarity with art-historical methods and terminology. They will also have good experience of working in a museum or heritage environment, and familiarity with museum administration. Furthermore, they will have excellent written and oral communication skills and strong numerical and research skills. Please see the Further Particulars for further essential criteria.
