The Manchester Museum, one of the UK’s leading regional museums and The Whitworth, invite applications for the post of Multimedia Technician.

Multimedia, digital art forms and interactive displays play a big part in what we do. We are looking for someone who has a passion for high quality AV, understands the role that multimedia plays in galleries and museums and is committed to delivering excellent IT and AV support to all building users.

Across both organisations you’ll work closely with curators, gallery technicians, visiting artists, exhibition designers and corporate events clients, using state of the art equipment to deliver world class events and exhibitions.

Another important aspect of the position is to provide IT and AV support to event organisers and colleagues, covering sound, visuals, lighting, PDA’s, laptops, smart phones and remote access technologies. You must be an excellent problem solver and able to communicate effectively at all levels within a variety of environments.

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