Are you excited by the idea of teaching young learners in a museum environment?

We are looking for a dynamic educator to deliver both formal and informal learning experiences at Wellington Museum, Nairn St Cottage and the Cable Car Museum. Each attraction has its own story to share, and is unique within the Museums Wellington group. Museums Wellington celebrates diversity and community, and has a kaupapa of inclusion.

Through a range of contexts and approaches the Learning team facilitates learning for students of all ages. We develop programmes and resources which support students to connect with the stories, themes, and taonga in the museum galleries. A creative and fun-loving team, Museums Wellington educators share a passion for lifelong learning and collaborate with teachers to develop and implement dynamic educational offerings consistent with one of the most-visited museum groups in Aotearoa.

If you have:

  • excellent interpersonal skills, interact positively with all people, and are a confident communicator,
  • enthusiasm for museums, local history and contemporary issues,
  • knowledge of best practice for educational programme delivery – in particular a solid understanding of the NZ Curriculum,
  • experience and comfort creating and leading a variety of educational activities,
  • a can do attitude and enjoy managing multiple projects simultaneously and working in a fast-paced environment

…then we’d love to hear from you.
