About the Herbert

Work at the Museum...

The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum is part of the Culture Coventry charitable trust. Occasionally we need to recruit new staff to the team, and we look for self-motivated and forward-thinking people. Even if you are based behind the scenes, you need to be comfortable working with or around visitors in an environment where creating the right atmosphere is everything. Everyone in the team plays an active part in delivering our fantastic attraction to visitors.

All of our vacancies can be found listed here when they arise, but if you can’t wait to get involved why not click here to see our Volunteering Programme.

Freelance Evaluator|Spring 2021 - Winter 2022
Fee to be discussed as part of application

Deadline: 26 February 2021

We wish to engage an independent Evaluator/Critical Friend to lead us through a formative evaluation process.

We are interested in the evaluator acting as a ‘Critical Friend’ supporting the HAGM team to collect and evaluate data and also to reflect on the delivery of the 2021 programme so they can apply this learning to support the future practical and strategic development of HAGM’s activities. This is also a developmental role – mentoring and supporting the team to develop their ability and tools to self-evaluate better in future.

To apply for the role of Evaluator/Critical Friend please provide the following information:

  • A CV.
  • An outline of the approach you would take to the role (max 700 words).
  • Your approach to fees and expenses for delivery of the Evaluator/Critical Friend role.
  • Contact details for two referees.
