The Stained Glass Museum based at Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire is seeking a new Curator. Founded in 1972, the museum houses one of the most important collections of stained glass in Britain and in 2010–11 had almost 16,000 visitors. It also organizes educational workshops and visits, and hosts a series of ground-breaking lectures. Part-time and voluntary staff play an invaluable role in ensuring the museum’s success, and the Friends Group has well over 200 members.

As the sole full-time professional on site, the curator needs energy, commitment, and excellent interpersonal and management skills. The post provides a unique opportunity to manage a specialist museum, ably supported by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable Board of Trustees.

The post is particularly suited to art historians or stained glass practitioners. A salary of around £23,500 is offered depending upon qualifications and experience.

For further information, please email the museum, or telephone 01353 660355.

The closing date for applications is 3 August 2012.
