Museums / heritage sector – kinds of jobs, where to look ..

happypersonreadingbookContinuing our look this week at arts-type jobs, let’s take a quick look at working in the heritage sector. This covers jobs like working in museums or art galleries, either as an administrator or as a curator, or maybe working for the local authority in their heritage / leisure departments.

Take a look at the profiles on the Prospects website for Museum / gallery exhibitions officer, Museum education officer, Museum / gallery curator, Heritage manager.  The profiles give you detailed info on each particular job, typical work activities, training and career development, typical employers and sources of vacancies.

Couple of websites to look at:
