Gallery Assistant (variable hours)

Applications for this vacancy closed on 24 February 2020 at 12:00PM
The History of Science Museum is looking for variable hours Gallery Assistants
to be a friendly face of the museum, providing a visitor experience that
exceeds our guests’ expectations.



Ideally, you will have experience from a customer service or retail
background, or similar. You will welcome visitors, hand out floor plans and
family friendly trails, provide directions and information, and assist
visitors with mobility issues – all in a warm and helpful way, and using your
initiative and common sense. You will encourage visitors to support our museum
by donating and hiring audioguides, and serve customers in our shop on an ad
hoc basis. We will also support you to learn more about our objects on display
so that you can choose one or two ‘star’ objects to highlight to visitors.



You will also help to protect the museum building and collection, and you will
ideally have some knowledge of basic security procedures and health and safety
requirements in a sensitive environment. 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. In the event of an emergency, you will assist with
evacuation.



Lifting may be required during the working day. Physical fitness for standing
and walking is required, since there is limited opportunity to sit during the
shift. You will be available to work weekdays, weekends and bank holidays.
Working hours are assigned by monthly rota. The role would particularly suit
those looking to work part-time.



To apply for this role and for further details including the job description
and selection criteria, please see the document below. You will be required to
upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your application.



The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Monday 24 February 2020.
Interviews are anticipated to take place on Monday 9 March 2020.
