In 2012 BMGA has now taken on responsibility for the collection formerly of the British Empire & Commonwealth Museum, which has added substantially to our own existing collection.  We are offering one new post and one job share post (with the existing CO World Cultures) who will report to the Senior Collections Officer (World Cultures) and play an important role in developing our approach to, and use of, this new collection alongside our own holdings of ethnography and foreign archaeology.  Existing strengths in Egyptology and collections representing peoples from parts of Africa, the Americas and the Pacific have now been supplemented with more comprehensive collections from the former Empire and Commonwealth.

Planning for the redevelopment of Bristol Museum & Art Gallery is now in its early stages and it is envisaged that the display of the World Cultures collection will be an important part of that new approach.  Improving access to stores and encouraging other uses of the collections is also vital.  The successful candidate will be expected to have existing museum experience and expertise in one area relevant to these collections along with drive and ambition to promote their relevance and importance.
