Newton Abbot’s brand-new museum was part of a National Lottery Heritage Funded project to relocate Newton Abbot Town Council and the Museum to the former St. Leonard’s Church. The project saw the restoration of the Victorian church and the addition of new community rooms. Although the Museum opened in October 2020, it has been closed for several months due to the Pandemic. We are now looking forward to opening the Museum, post ‘lockdown’, with the support of a Museum Assistant joining our dynamic team.

The Museum Assistant will assist the Museum Curator in the efficient and effective day-to-day operation of the Museum.

We are seeking someone who is flexible and proactive, and who can work effectively as part of a small team. You should have experience of working with museum collections and with volunteers in a customer-facing environment.
