Assistant Curators spend their time working on object-related activity and maintaining documentation which is relevant and integral to the museum’s collections management policy. All posts deal with enquiries from the public – written, by telephone and in person – and Assistant Curators should have a strong commitment to public access. The range of tasks undertaken by Assistant Curators varies considerably at different points of time but it is the museum’s intention that Assistant Curators should gain as wide an experience of curatorial work as possible.
