OnFife - Exhibitions and Community Engagement Manager
Post: Exhibitions and Community Engagement Manager
Salary: £38,312 - £46,065
Hours: 36 per week
Location: Iona House HQ, OnFife
OnFife and as Fife's largest cultural organisation they specialise in making jaws drop, hearts warm, eyes light up and imaginations run wild. They work with a huge range of partners, artists and creatives and their spaces are some of Fife's favourite places. An ambitious leadership-oriented charity, they're built on strong values, and those values make them who they are - fearless, inviting, fair and exciting.
This is an exciting opportunity that has arisen due to the retirement of the current postholder within OnFife.
There will be an opportunity to shape the strategic direction of OnFife's exhibition and interpretation programme with specific focus on being relevant to communities, bringing people back to the venues and services and striving to showcase the best of the diverse collections. You will oversee the conclusion of our major exhibition, Jack Vettriano: The Early Years at Kirkcaldy Galleries and will take forward partnership planning with local arts groups.
The postholder would be expected to work from our main headquarters at Iona House, Kirkcaldy, across their venues and from home. Some weekend working, out of hours and working Public and Bank Holidays may be required to deliver the exhibition programme.
The ideal candidate will have strong leadership skills, be an effective team player and be driven by making programmes and exhibitions relevant to communities. They're looking for a visionary thinker with competent skills in the museum, heritage or cultural sector. You will be able to demonstrate an imaginative, creative approach to interpretation that uses a variety of learning styles to promote access to, and engagement with, target audiences.
