The Ashmolean Museum has been described as “unquestionably the finest university museum in the world” (The Times, 29 October 2009). The Museum is a part of the Oxford University Museums Group and houses the University’s collections of art and archaeology together with objects and works owned by other private individuals and bodies and loaned to it. The collections themselves are of world significance. They range from archaeology to the fine and decorative arts of Europe and Asia and from coins to casts of classical sculpture. These are used for teaching and research purposes both within the University and in the worldwide academic and research communities. Above all, the Ashmolean is a great public Museum, open to all without charge.

You will provide daily support to the museum with responsibility for carrying maintenance and porterage tasks. You will be a member of the Facilities Team and work under the close supervision of the Deputy Facilities Manager and the Facilities Technician.

You will have a proven ability to work as a member of a team and possess good interpersonal and organisational skills, ideally in a building maintenance environment and be able to help provide a first class facilities service to the museum by carrying out basic maintenance and porterage tasks. You will have a desire to ensure that the museum is at its best possible appearance, especially in the public facing areas and have a good working relationship across the museum staff in support of their various tasks and responsibilities.

This is a full-time post with a requirement to work weekends, evenings and bank holidays working shifts.
