Tullie House is a leading regional museum that cares for many outstanding collections of national importance covering art, archaeology, natural history, local and social history as well subjects that cross these disciplines.

The building has been a museum since 1893, when it opened in combination with an art school and library; today the Tullie name symbolises heritage, art, creativity and quality. Tullie House is a well-known and much loved museum; it also has strong local support and benefits from an increasingly high national profile.

We like to think that our museum is a special and unique place, both for our dedicated staff and our many visitors. We have a manifesto that provides a strong and vibrant vision for our museum, but we cannot deliver any of our ambitions without knowledgeable, experienced and passionate staff – without them we wouldn’t be the success that we are.

We are looking for candidates who are efficient and organised, can undertake independent research, are diligent and who can interpret funding criteria to write draft project proposals. A knowledge of funding bodies that support cultural initiatives would be advantageous but is not essential.
