Newton Abbot Museum opened in October 2020 as part of a National Lottery Heritage Funded project to relocate Newton Abbot Town Council and the museum to the former St. Leonard’s Church. The project saw the restoration of the Victorian church and the addition of new community rooms. With the Pandemic lockdowns and restrictions the museum was able to re-open without bookings in July 2021. Since then, we have been working on creating a range of events, exhibitions and exciting activities to engage the community.

We are looking for a Curatorial Assistant to join our dynamic team. You will assist the Museum Curator in the efficient and effective day-to-day operation of the museum.

We are seeking someone who is flexible and proactive, and who can work effectively as part of a small team. You should have experience of working with museum collections and with volunteers in a customer-facing environment.

The museum team is comprised of a Curator, a Community Engagement Officer, an Administrative Assistant and a team of enthusiastic museum volunteers.
