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.

Job Opportunities: Where can I find further information?

'Where do you find all these jobs from?' people ask us. 'Where can we promote our vacancies?' asked someone else.

Well, we are delighted to include jobs emailed to us for inclusion on the website and in the newsletter; others are gleaned from some of the jobsearch websites that cater for the culture and heritage sectors.

Here are some suggestions of where to look.  Most sites offer the option to register and have jobs that meet your criteria emailed directly to you:

  • Arts Jobs from Arts Council England details adverts for a range of opportunities within the arts sector.
  • The University of Leicester's School of Museum Studies hosts the Jobs Desk, an extensive listing source for jobs in museums and galleries. This service is provided free of charge to the public as part of the School's commitment to the sector and the career development of its graduates.
  • Back in the day, museum colleagues would huddle in the staff room table on a Monday, looking over the Guardian Jobs. Now they are 24/7 online.
  • Museum Jobs is a specialist recruitment portal for cultural heritage jobs.
