Learning Manager & Florence Nightingale Actor Explainer

Job Title: Learning Manager and Florence Nightingale Actor Explainer
Salary: £28,500
Hours: 37.5 per week
Term: Permanent
Location: Florence Nightingale Museum, St Thomas Hospital, London SE1 7EW
Closing date: 5:00 pm 9 February 2022

The ‘Learning Manager & Florence Nightingale Actor-Interpreter’ will lead the development and implementation of the sites learning programme, as our museum emerges from the pandemic.

In addition to supporting the development of a new Learning and Engagement Strategy, this role will be required to be hands-on, delivering performances as Florence Nightingale to KS1 school groups, family audiences and community groups. The museum has a strong track-record of such performances, which are both artistically and commercially important to our business plan, and it is therefore essential that the post-holder has the personal attributes to convincingly portray Nightingale (at some point of her life), as well as accurately learning scripts and relevant information.

The post-holder will lead administration and bookings for education as well as attending meetings with potential partners and key networks from time to time, exploring new opportunities for the museum. The individual will also have the opportunity to develop other character performances associated with nursing and healthcare, alongside new products and events for schools and holiday activities. It is the intention of the museum to continue the impressive growth which was secured before the pandemic and it is therefore vital that the successful applicant is customer focused but financially prudent. This is a key position as the museum seeks to relocate to a new site and there is a real opportunity for personal growth and development.

The post-holder will be expected to build their knowledge of Nightingale, relevant history and contemporary issues within nursing as well as having a strong understanding of formal and informal museum learning programmes. Experience of producing digital content would be an advantage.

The Florence Nightingale Museum is an award-winning independent museum, located on the site of St Thomas’ Hospital in London. The museum, which is an independent charity, plans to relaunch in May 2022, returning to daily opening, having made the difficult decision to operate via pre-booked visits only throughout 2021 due to the demands of the pandemic.
