Make the past the now.

We are hiring:

A Senior Curator to take care of the remarkable collection of Historic Fine Art at the Whitworth.  These collections have been part of the Whitworth’s unique identity since its very earliest years.  Now with an award winning new building, with exemplary exhibition spaces, study spaces and collection stores, there could not be a better time to join.

We are looking for a dynamic, open minded, passionate curator who loves fine art and can demonstrate a thorough grasp of art history, current display and exhibition making trends and is committed to sharing their specialist knowledge with the widest range of people – from academics to toddlers and their parents.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. However, as black and minority ethnic (BME) candidates are currently under-represented at this level in this area, we would particularly welcome applications from BME applicants. All appointments will be made on merit.

Interviews are likely to take place on Monday, 10 October 2016.
