Learning Producer (Community Partnerships and Events)

  • Organisation:National Science and Media Museum
  • Location:Bradford, England
  • Salary:£25,000 (pro rata)
  • Contract type:Part (21 Hours a week)

We are now recruiting for a Learning Producer based at the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford to work within the Community Partnerships and Events strand as part of the new Sound and Vision galleries.

Our new Sound and Vision Galleries will highlight the significant contribution sound and visual technologies have had on the world. As a Learning Producer, you will help develop a programme of activities alongside the galleries that will raise aspirations, develop skills and increase digital confidence in young people.

You will work to bring 14–19-year-olds in Bradford into the centre of the Sound & Vision Project. This will include setting up a Sound and Vision Youth Forum, which will be consulted on the content and design of the public programme. The youth forum will include young people living in our priority areas of BD3 & BD5 and will build on contacts with local youth organisations.

Part of this role will also involve working collaboratively with other departments, for example you will work with the communications team to deliver the young producers programme which includes social media takeovers, and production of a film. Similarly, you will work with the Sound and Vision project team to deliver consultation workshops with local audiences and support the delivery of the activity plan.

As a result, you will produce events and programmes that will create a meaningful set of activities for 14–19-year-olds in the Bradford district to gain employment skills and develop a deeper relationship with the museum.

Joining us you will be motivated by a strong desire to help ignite curiosity around STEM by assisting discovery through active participation and social interaction. You will have experience working with young people (aged 14-19) and community groups and you will be able to understand the potential needs of diverse audiences. You will possess a creative, collaborative and flexible approach to working which will enable you to help our team to influence and shape people’s engagement with, and attitudes towards, science.

The Science Museum Group (SMG) is here to inspire futures. As the world’s leading group of science museums, we share our unparalleled collection spanning science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine with over five million visitors each year. Joining us as an employee, you will have the opportunity to develop your career in a world-class museum group.  We know work/life balance and wellbeing is crucial to our colleagues, so we currently offer up to 25 days annual leave in addition to bank holidays; BUPA medical and dental care; employee assistance programme; enhanced contributory pension; enhanced occupational sick, maternity, paternity and adoption leave and career breaks.

‘Open for All’ is one of the Science Museum Group’s five core values and sets out our important aspiration to be a place for everyone. As a national museum group, we have an ability to reach a wide and diverse population of audiences, colleagues and partners through our geography and scale.

We are working hard to understand our organisation better and to foster a culture that recognises and values different backgrounds, mindsets, skills, experience, knowledge and expertise. By having greater diversity, we believe that we will be a stronger and better organisation and ultimately will be able to inspire more futures. We therefore welcome applications from those who bring difference.
