Are you an imaginative and knowledgeable art specialist, passionate about finding and sharing interpretive stories? Do you have the focus and enthusiasm to work on a major museum project?

The £42 million Paisley Museum Re-Imagined project will deliver a modernised, redeveloped museum unique to Paisley and Renfrewshire. When we re-open in 2022, the museum will cast new light on the fascinating collections cared for by Paisley Museum and Art Gallery.

We are looking for an art curator who will think creatively about the fine and decorative art collections in our care, finding stories that will engage, inspire and resonate with our target audiences. Our curator will investigate and research the collections, and work with our community partners to find the most compelling narratives for interpretation in the redeveloped museum.

You will be knowledgeable about fine and decorative art, keen to find new ways of understanding objects, interested in multi-disciplinary interpretation and committed to working with our local community. You will be excited by creating new connections between museum collections.

Your work will make a direct and tangible contribution to the redevelopment of Paisley Museum and Art gallery - the flagship project in the cultural regeneration of Paisley.
