Are you motivated by making things work better? We’re looking for an Innovation Manager to join our team and lead the charity’s R&D programme.

Job Description

You’ll be comfortable with tech and a highly competent project manager. You’ll bring your creative problem-solving abilities to the fore, and initiate and lead exciting new user-focused programmes to help museums increase their impact. Passionate about the role of heritage and culture to communities, you will share our charity’s values of inclusivity, integrity and collaboration.

This role plays a leading part in the strategic direction of our charity.

The Innovation Manager will be responsible for leading the charity’s aim to be recognised nationally and internationally as sector leaders in innovative practice – testing, evidencing, and sharing productive approaches which stimulate innovation in museums and their partners. They will play an active role in delivering the priorities of the Cornwall Museums Strategy and creating a culture of innovation at CMP.

The role will lead a team and partnerships to deliver Research and Development projects and programmes, to test out new approaches to museum practice, which are scalable and shared with the global museums’ community. The role will champion user-centred approaches which demonstrate a deep understanding of museums’ needs and those of their communities as well as exemplifying best practice in inclusivity.

We particularly welcome applications from people who are disabled and/or people who identify as Black, Asian or from an ethnic minority.

Company Description

Cornwall Museums Partnership is an independent charitable incorporated organisation, formed in 2015 to provide leadership for Cornwall’s museums; to support, represent and provide a voice. We are an established sector-leading charity which is not afraid to think differently and respond to the museumscape around us, rather than wait for wisdom from “up the line.”

Our purpose is to create positive social change with museums. We believe in the power of museums to transform society, due to their unique position in our communities. Our distinctiveness comes from our location; we are Cornish and rural. These are important characteristics and fuel our appetite to lead from the edge, and act as a test bed for new ideas and practice.
