The British Museum is seeking an experienced project manager with both procurement and resource management expertise to deliver essential collections documentation, storage, and move projects as part of the British Museum Blythe House Project. The project will move collections in storage at Blythe House to a new, purpose-built storage and research facility, the British Museum Archaeological Research Collection, to be developed as part of a major new partnership with the University of Reading.
You will be responsible for the development of the programme of moves from Blythe House, and delivery of projects from brief to evaluation. This will involve recommending budgets and resource requirements to ensure best value for money. Each project methodology will need to respond to the specific needs of our complex and diverse collection, and work must be sequenced and managed in collaboration with the move programmes of the other two museums based at Blythe House.
Qualified to degree level or equivalent, you will have proven project and resource management skills, experience of managing high value supplier contracts. You should be capable of leading and managing teams that will include collections specialists, furniture contractors and other suppliers to deliver high quality storage facilities. You will have strong engagement skills and the ability to communicate complex information effectively to a wide variety of internal and external stakeholders. Many of these projects represent new ways of managing and accessing the collection, so diplomacy and influencing skills are essential.
