Opportunities at The William Morris Society: Learning and Outreach Officer

The William Morris Society is a charity and membership organization promoting the life, work and contemporary relevance of William Morris, the great 19thCentury designer, craftsman, writer and social activist. The Society maintains a free-access museum in Morris’ former home on the riverside in Hammersmith and produces talks, publications, exhibitions, learning and participation activities. We are currently recruiting for a learning and outreach officer who wants to work with a small team of enthusiastic staff and volunteers on a 14-21 hours per week basis for a six month period.

Working closely with the Society Manager, the postholder will be focused primarily on learning and outreach development activities and digitally-delivered public engagement. The position is a fixed term contract for six months, extendable by mutual agreement, with flexible and remote working possible. The ideal candidate will be an outgoing and self-motivated individual, with a minimum of 4 years’ experience in a heritage or arts environment and willingness to work independently but also collaboratively. Knowledge and interest in William Morris and 19thCentury art and/or social history will be a major advantage.
