Inclusive Funding Facilitator (Delivering Change)

Organisation: Museums Galleries Scotland

Salary: Starting £32,131

Location: Edinburgh (hybrid working)

Museums Galleries Scotland (MGS) is the National Development Body for Scotland’s museums and galleries sector – this includes 440 museums and galleries of all sizes and organisational types.  We strive to be an inclusive, agile and forward-looking organisation that seeks to lead and support positive change in the sector.

MGS has been funded by Scottish Government and National Lottery Heritage Fund to develop Delivering Change, a programme which supports the museums workforce to work with underrepresented audiences with confidence to create a more inclusive museum sector.

The Inclusive Funding Facilitator (Delivering Change) will work with the grants team to support a review of MGS’s existing grants programme to ensure it reflects inclusive values and can contribute to positive change in the sector. During this time, MGS will explore potential change across our grant streams, and the post holder will work with project advisors and project team to plan the Community Grants that will be administered as part of Delivering Change.

You will have experience in instigating and supporting change within an organisation and experience of working within the communities or equalities sector, ideally with those who have experienced barriers to accessing culture in the past. Strong communication, organisational and administrative skills are required; the post holder will additionally have excellent critical thinking skills, ideally honed within an inclusion, participation, or equalities context, and some understanding of grant funding. You will be able to work with a range of colleagues and partners with enthusiasm and initiative as well as constructively challenge current practices and thinking.

The successful candidate will manifest MGS’s core values: collaboration, integrity, passion for museums, and courageousness.
