Museums, Galleries and Heritage

Roles in museums, galleries & heritage

Working in the museums, galleries and heritage sector can be a very appealing option for many graduates. Roles can involve curating collections, marketing, educating people, preserving collections, and arts administration.

Contracts tend to be short-term due to funding, so qualifications and voluntary experience are very important.

There is a large variety of different employers, from small collections owned by a single person or company, to large, publicly owned institutions.
