The Migration Museum explores how the movement of people to and from Britain across the ages has shaped who we are – as individuals, as communities, and as a nation.

Migration is a pressing contemporary issue and is at the centre of polarised political and online debate. But there’s an underlying story of comings and goings stretching back many centuries. And this story goes to the heart of who we are today. Britain has thousands of museums, but none comprehensively focused on this important theme that connects us all. The time is right for a highly relevant, accessible visitor attraction that shines a light on who we are, where we come from and where we are going.

Working alongside our existing team and with a range of partners, our Creative Producers will:

  • Work with the Head of Public Engagement and Head of Communications to develop and deliver impactful digital campaigns and projects in order to reach new audiences, influence public conversations and help to shift the narrative around migration.
  • Develop creative content for digital platforms including, but not exclusive to, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Spotify and our website, in line with our digital strategy and current campaigns
  • Assist curators in research, planning and management of new exhibitions
  • Work with our Head of Creative Content to ensure exhibitions are updated and maintained
  • Work with Head of Learning and Partnerships to deliver Migration Network events and high quality resources to Network participants
  • Support front of house team with visual merchandising and visitor engagement initiatives to improve retail revenues and visitor experience
  • Support cultural programme and cultivation (fundraising) events production (online or in museum as needed) arranging speakers and performers, graphics, music and logistics.
