Re-opened after a £23.75 million transformation, the National Army Museum has a mission to tell the story of our Army and the people who have served in it. Through five thematic galleries and our innovative exhibition and events programme, the public can explore what it's like to be a soldier, find out why we fought in conflicts (past and present), and discover the impact the Army has had on our society.
Closing date: 27 March 2020, 12pm (noon)
We are seeking to appoint an Exhibition Designer within our small Exhibitions and Design team, to work on both the Museum’s special exhibitions programme and changes to the permanent galleries.
The post-holder will interpret the exhibition narrative to create both a 2D and 3D concept for exhibitions, ensuring that the aims and themes of the exhibition are reflected in the design, and produce drawings for construction. A large part of this role will involve working cross culturally throughout the museum, to ensure that marketing and print collateral reflects the exhibition and the Museum’s brand guidelines.
The post-holder will also be required to produce graphics and 3D exhibition design for the permanent galleries, and produce two small touring designs per year, for our Regimental Museum Partners.
The successful candidate will be educated to degree level and have demonstrable experience of producing high quality graphic design for print and display. Experience of working with museum collections or in a museum environment is desirable.
