Tate’s aim is to increase public awareness, understanding and enjoyment of British art from the 16th century to the present day. Successful in our Heritage Lottery Fund bid for Transforming Tate Britain: Building, Archives, Access, we are changing the way people engage with Britain’s cultural heritage.
You will oversee the digitisation of 52,000 treasures from Tate Archive, ranging from artists’ sketchbooks to photographs and hand written correspondence, as well as monitoring the development of the associated learning programme. As an experienced Project Manager you will ensure the process is delivered on time, to budget and to the highest quality. Your team will work to best practice in the digitisation of fragile archival material and your robust project plan will see the operation run smoothly and efficiently. You will work collaboratively, building relationships across Tate and with volunteers, trainees and external partner organisations.
Enthusiastic about working with a national collection, you will combine your proven track record of managing large-scale digitisation of a similar kind with experience of running learning and outreach projects.
