Recognition Committee Members (2 vacancies)

Museums Galleries Scotland (MGS) is the National Development Body for Scottish museums and galleries. Our role is to work collaboratively to invest in and develop a sustainable museum and galleries sector for Scotland, in line with the aims of Going Further: The National Strategy for Scotland’s Museums and Galleries.

The Recognition Committee is responsible for providing advice and advocacy for the operation of the scheme. The Committee is seeking two committee members to serve for a four-year term (renewable).

The Recognition Scheme celebrates, promotes and invests in nationally significant collections held outside the nationally run museums and galleries around the country. Funded by the Scottish Government and managed by Museums Galleries Scotland, the Recognition Scheme helps to make sure that these important collections are identified, cared for, protected and promoted to a wider audience.

You will have a passion for heritage and culture and a significant interest in the museum and/or heritage sectors, as well as the ability to analyse complex material.

All positions are unremunerated, but travel and subsistence expenses will be reimbursed. Committee members will be expected to attend two meetings a year, normally in Edinburgh, and will be invited to attend events throughout their term. 

Find out more about the Recognition Scheme.

Closing date: Monday 19 August, 9am. Interviews  with candidates will be held in late August 2019.

Museums Galleries Scotland strives to be an equal opportunities employer and positively welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
