Sensitive Artefact Strategy Project Move Assistant

Birmingham Museums Trust are implementing a series of targeted collections relocations and other measures in order to safeguard collections from the development work adjacent to the Museum Collection Centre. This work will involve some minor work to the building to improve dust-protection, the relocation of externally stored objects, and the relocation and improved protection of targeted areas of the collection stored internally.

Under the direction of the Project Team Leader, the Project Move Assistant will undertake the auditing of any collections in advance of any move, and update their locations (and provide other documentation improvements as appropriate) throughout the project.

While reporting to the Project Team Leader, you will also work closely with the Documentation Registrar and Collections Team Leader, undertaking collections management work for the project in line with wider BMT standards and procedures. You will work alongside contractors and other freelance support where appropriate, supporting the move, re-packing, and re-location of museum objects.

As this project is responding to an external development project, we are anticipating that commencement for this post will be on or around April 1st 2021, and will conclude on December 31st 2021.
