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.

People from Black, Asian and Ethnically Diverse backgrounds, disabled, deaf and neurodivergent people are underrepresented in our workforce, so we particularly encourage applications from candidates in these groups.
