Jobs at the Museum


Have the best of both worlds

Our Museum is a unique place, both for our dedicated staff and our many visitors.

Our aim as a Museum is clear, but equally clear is the importance we place on our staff; without whose knowledge, experience and passion we wouldn’t be the success we are.

Whether you are looking for a career specifically in the museum or charitable sector or one of the professions, the Black Country Living Museum has many things which set it apart from other organisations.

What we can offer you

Along with our competitive benefits such as generous annual leave allowance (plus a buying and selling annual leave scheme),   occupational pension scheme, enhanced sick pay, staff discount scheme, subsidised food and drink, voluntary Health Cash Plan, Child Care Voucher Scheme and free entry to numerous other local attractions, we offer an environment which encourages development, empowerment and personal responsibility. 

Current Vacancies

You’ll also be assisting with kitchen preparation and cleaning duties, contributing as a team member to the production of all fish and chip products, and will be trained to cook fish and chip shop products using two different range and oil types.

An ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate the ability to work as a team player under pressure, have excellent standards of personal presentation, and will be mindful and pay attention to operational details.
