Security Review 'sharing day'

Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations.  We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact joanna.low@brighton-hove.gov.uk to register your interest.

The D-Day Museum is a tangible link to the momentous events of 6 June 1944. It is a place for commemoration, a source of engagement and learning, a repository of personal stories and memories, and the embodiment of the central role that Portsmouth played in modern world history.

With the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund we are transforming the D-Day Museum into an inspiring, welcoming 'must see' environment where there is always something new to see and do. The museum aspires to be the UK D-Day learning hub and will forge an international reputation.

This exciting role will play a pivotal role in achieving our aspirations for the Museum by developing and delivering the activity and events programmes. We are looking for someone with a passion for the D-Day story and how it can be used to try to engage a wide range of audiences, as well as excellent communication and project management skills and a track record of using museum collections to engage and inspire.

If you would like to be part of this vision why not apply for this great opportunity to shape the offer at a 'new' museum.
