Would you like to shape the future of a much-loved museum and be instrumental in ensuring its long-term success at the heart of a growing city community?

The Museum of Cambridge is at a momentous turning point in its history. We are seeking to appoint a dynamic and motivated Transitional Project Officer who will implement the organisational and operational change that will secure its future.

Capturing Cambridge

Capturing Cambridge is a project which develops the Museum as a venue, resource centre and ‘home’ for local and community history projects in Cambridge.

Tracing Traditions

How do people remember and reinvent age-old traditions for our modern world? How does folklore influence the way we live? We will be exploring these ideas and more in this project.
