Applications are invited from suitably qualified, enthusiastic and experienced individuals to take forward an exciting new role at Elgin Museum funded by Museums Galleries Scotland.

We’re looking for someone special who can bring a fresh and innovative approach to the funding of our Victorian museum, retaining all that is best in its current expression of heritage but fitting it for a new age, now with the additional challenge of adjusting to the Covid pandemic and its aftermath.

You will have a sound knowledge of finance and funding and a talent for building strong relationships. You will be able to work independently and to liaise successfully with other organisations and the staff and volunteers of the Museum.
