About the role

This role combines the management of the University’s collections and archive with the identification and development of opportunities for meaningful student placements and projects, the acquisition of new skills, and the support of initiatives to enhance and extend our use of collections, including through the documentation of contemporary practice. The collection consists primarily of artworks produced by generations of staff and students from the Bath School of Art and Design, the University Archive, and a range of other material, including a small natural history collection. We want to make sure that this material is well-managed, including through student projects, widely accessible, creatively displayed, and effectively used in learning and research. 

About you

Professionally trained in collections or archive management, you will have a good grounding in standard curatorial practices, systems and processes. You will also be committed to the use and development of collections for learning and teaching in higher education, and aware of the potential that this has, using either the University’s own collections to do this or able to build partnerships with others. You might be asked to lead specific teaching sessions, or to support academic colleagues in incorporating the use of collections in their teaching and into course design. 

Experience of fundraising for collections management or display projects would be welcomed. 

About us

Bath Spa University is focused on creative enterprise and guided by our four values of respect, inclusivity, collaboration and sustainability. We teach around 8,000 students on a number of campuses around Bath, with most being located at Newton Park, including a listed Georgian house and grounds, or Locksbrook Road, our new city-centre art and design campus.  Our research centres focus on creative industries and the humanities.

The post works across the University and with all Schools. It is based for administrative purposes in the School of Writing, Publishing and the Humanities, where there is expertise in museum and heritage management.
