Join our Team!

Are you looking for hands-on experience in a small but committed team that combines practical work and an appreciation of heritage? Do you enjoy visiting museum and galleries and want to use practical skills to help us share the stories of our past to help inform our future? Are you a proactive problem-solver who likes to see a job well done?

As a Museum & Galleries Technician in our Museums and Galleries Service you will work closely with our Curatorial and Engagement Teams to support the safe and responsible display, use and storage of museum objects and art.

Technicians are often responsible for keeping our collections safe and secure, monitoring the conditions, and maintaining good environments for our huge array of objects, that are displayed in our listed buildings across Kirklees.

Whilst developing your own skills and knowledge through the Apprenticeship you will have an opportunity to work with internal and external conservators, curators, artists, scientists, contractors, art handlers and exhibition managers on a variety of exhibition and display opportunities.

While this job involves the movement of heavy objects, working at height, and use of power tools and machinery in a workshop environment, full training will be provided.

The Learning Provider for this role is based in Westminster, therefore day travel to London once a month for the duration of learning is a core aspect of this Apprenticeship. Travel expenses for this will be covered as part of the funding for this role.

Would you like to have some dedicated time to spend on a sewing activity? Then this is the workshop for you, we’ll be having a go at slow stitch and then looking at how different fabrics and yarns take up woad dye as well as learning how to set up a woad vat.
