Freelance Opportunity: The Deaf Museum, Warrington

Project Co-ordinator (Freelance)
Fixed Fee £24,000 (paid in six instalments of £4000 per quarter)
18 month contract

The Deaf Museum, which is run by the British Deaf History Society (BDHS) and based in Warrington, is seeking a project co-ordinator with experience of the art and museum sector to work a 18-month contract on a Heritage Lottery Funded project as follows:

  • Develop training programmes for Volunteers and Trustees
  • Create and develop new fundraising strategies
  • Create and develop a 5-year Forward/Business Plan (which will include future relocation)
  • Develop partnership and consultation opportunities with other local deaf heritage projects
  • Assist in the BDHS’s 25th anniversary celebrations
  • Assist in new strategies for the museum

This is a freelance post with hours to suit the successful applicant. However, a desk will be made available in the Deaf Museum for use when required.

Please be aware that all volunteers and Trustee members are profoundly deaf so experience of working in a deaf environment and in the use of British Sign Language will be an advantage. Failing this, excellent communication and writing skills will be most desirable.

Closing date: 14 May 2018

Interviews will take place on Monday 21 May

For an application form and further details please email Because the current volunteer staff are deaf, we are not able to provide telephone consultation or answer telephone enquiries.
