Part Time -  18.5 hours per week

Fixed Term until March 2026

“A local museum with a global collection that inspires people and connects communities”

This is a new post that has been created to help us realise the next stage of our ambition to be a community museum. You will be joining the team at an exciting time as we build on our work over the last few years. Since 2018 we have developed strong working relationships with home educating families, LGBTQ+ people and refugee groups. We are also starting to build relationships with people living local social housing areas, D/deaf/disabled and neurodiverse communities and artists of colour.

As Projects Officer you'll provide management support for the delivery of the museum's National Portfolio (NPO) programme and the development, delivery and monitoring of externally funded projects. 

Although advertised as part-time post we will support the successful candidate to secure funding to increase their hours if they want to.

About the museum 

The award-winning Hastings Museum & Art Gallery is a family-friendly museum with amazingly diverse collections; there really is something for everyone! The museum was established over 130 years ago and has always offered people the opportunity to explore art, culture and history from around the world. Today, we are a socially engaged organisation focused on community engagement, particularly with groups from disadvantaged areas, minorities and vulnerable groups, as well as have a strong emphasis on promoting health, well-being, education and lifelong learning.


Over the last decade Hastings has undergone an economic and cultural renaissance. The area’s reputation as cultural centre continues to strengthen with flagship projects such as the RIBA award-wining Pier, Turner-nominated Project Art Works, Hastings Contemporary and iconic De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill stimulating new cultural economic activity. The town is full of life with plenty of things to do in the evening and at weekends, from the arcades on the sea to bars and cafes in the town centre sitting alongside a full calendar of festivals, arts and cultural events. Hastings is easily accessible by road, rail and bus – with good transport links to London and along the South Coast to places like Brighton.

Hastings Borough Council

The council’s vision is for Hastings to be “…a happy, welcoming place with a vibrant, unique culture where everyone has their needs met and is supported and encouraged to live their best lives.”

We are working to achieve this alongside the other council services, from regenerating the town centre and improving the cleanliness of our streets and beaches to increasing cultural opportunities and strengthening the local economy. We are all driven by a belief in fairness, a desire to tackle economic and social deprivation, and a recognition of the value of cultural diversity in the town.
