Job Description

Learning Facilitator 

Are you a great communicator with a passion for learning? Would you like to learn new skills, to deliver schools programmes in a museum? If so, why not apply to be a Learning Facilitator at The Postal Museum.

In 2017, The Postal Museum opened a new heritage attraction in Central London, with two experiences in one. Alongside interactive exhibition galleries visitors can take a subterranean ride through the tunnels of the old Post Office Underground Railway – Mail Rail – for the first time in its 100-year history.

The Postal Museum welcomes around 150,000 visitors a year. It’s an exciting time to join the museum as we aim to expand access to our collections, grow an increasingly diverse audience and inspire everyone to make richer and more meaningful connections in their lives.

This is a new role in a small collaborative team. As a Learning facilitator, the working day will be varied. In school term time you will prepare for, set up and deliver school programmes in the museum. In school holidays you will support the delivery of family activities. There will be occasional evening and weekend work supporting public programmes and special events.

Learning facilitators will show enthusiasm and commitment to providing enjoyable, engaging and interactive learning experiences inspired by the objects and stories in our collection.

An awareness of the National Curriculum would be an advantage as you’ll deliver primary school programmes linking to subjects including Science, History, Maths and Art and design.

The role will suit people who keen to develop new skills and knowledge and we’ll provide you with full training.
