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 email@example.com to register your interest.
Job Opportunity: Marketing Officer, Museum of Army Flying
The Museum of Army Flying at Middle Wallop in Hampshire tells the story of British Army Flying from the earliest attempts to conduct operations with gas filled balloons in the late 1800s to today’s Army Air Corps which has operated with distinction around the world in a number of roles including combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
