Programme Development Officer

Freelance Contract: Temporary 9-month contract

Pay rate: £9,225 over 9 months (equivalent to £20,500 pro rata)

Hours:  Equivalent to 3 days per week

Start: Immediately


For the past seven years The Museum of East Asian Art in Bath has been delivering a highly successful, annual, one-day event – the Lunar New Year Extravaganza. We are now looking to re-evaluate the delivery of this and develop it into a more inclusive and sustainable project with greater community involvement, which is better integrated into the Museum’s educational and exhibition programmes.

We are looking for an individual with exceptionally strong organisational skills who is experienced in using the arts in community engagement and development, who can pass on their enthusiasm for art, music and culture to people of all ages. You will play a vital role in helping to develop the Museum’s Community Engagement Programme.  It is essential that you have proven skills and experience in evaluation and reporting as this is a key part of this role.

We are a small team, so it is vital that you are a team-player with a proactive attitude, and able to ‘hit the ground running’. It would be particularly useful if you have local knowledge and experience of working with more marginalised groups in B&NES. Some local travel will be required. Knowledge or experience of Asian communities and culture would be an advantage.
