Looking for a new challenge?

Then why not come and join us at the David Livingstone Birthplace in the new role of Museum Manager. We are one of Scotland’s most dynamic and ambitious Museum Trusts, following our major NLHF funded refurbishment, that resulted in the re-launch of the historic site in Summer 2021. We are looking for someone with the drive and passion to help us realise our ambitions and capitalise on our opportunities.
You will be excited about the positive impact that museums can have for our audiences and communities (locally in South Lanarkshire, nationally and with the African Scottish diaspora). You will have an interest in supporting the re-contextualisation of Livingstone’s story and furthering Scotland’s discussions around colonialism and slavery. As Museum Manager you will manage the learning, collections development and curatorial activities of the David Livingstone Museum. You will also support the organisation of exhibitions and events and develop our community heritage work.
We are looking for someone who has excellent staff management skills, good organisational skills, a strong understanding of the heritage sector in Scotland and the ability to manage resources to support the longer-term sustainability of the site. In return, we provide a unique opportunity to help shape our progressive and ambitious Museum, team and work with an organisation that has international reach.
