Applications for this vacancy closed on 25 January 2018 at 12:00PM
The Museum of the History of Science is looking for Variable Hours Gallery
Assistants who are able to provide a visitor experience that exceeds the
public’s expectation.



Ideally, you will have work experience from a customer services background, or
similar. Your role will also play a part in helping to protect the collections
and the museum structure, and therefore you will have some knowledge of basic
security procedures and health and safety requirements in a sensitive
environment.



In this visitor-facing role you will possess first class communication skills,
able to answer questions regarding the museum and its objects in a
professional and courteous manner. You will also have a confident and pro-
active approach to dealing with arising problems and issues as well as
demonstrate a positive attitude with a desire to achieve results as a team.



You will be required to closely monitor the galleries during public opening
hours, being present to help with enquiries, provide directions and generally
ensure the safe-keeping of the museums’ artefacts.



Throughout a working day light-lifting may be required - physical fitness for
standing and walking is required, since there is limited opportunity to sit
during the shift.



Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to
upload a statement (500 words maximum) as part of your online application
which answers the three questions below:





1. How do your skills, experience and knowledge demonstrate you are the right candidate for this role?


2. Which three key attributes will you bring to the role and how do they relate to the visitor experience?


3. Provide us an example of when you delivered excellent service, and what the outcome of the service scenario was.
