Learning & Engagement Manager

The Barber Institute is seeking to appoint an experienced, dynamic and highly-motivated Learning and Engagement Manager to join our team and contribute to the next phase of the Barber’s strategic development.

Working closely with the Head of Public Engagement, the Learning and Engagement Manager will be responsible for the day to day management and delivery of Learning and Engagement at the Barber, ensuring that the Barber retains and extends its reputation for excellence and innovation in this area.

The Barber Institute, part of the University of Birmingham, was founded in 1932 ‘for the study and encouragement of art and music’.  It holds one of the most outstanding and internationally significant art collections assembled during the 20th century– housed in a listed Art Deco building. A programme of exhibitions, high profile loans and displays compliment the collection.

This an exciting time for the Barber- in 2017, more people visited the Barber galleries than in any previous year in our history with 65,590 visits being made.  The Barber is now entering a new strategic phase with a central focus on public engagement and delivering sector-leading Visitor Experience and Learning and Engagement.
