Museum Of Cider Documentation Officer
This varied role would suit someone with an interest in social history and experience of working in archive/museum documentation.
The post-holder will facilitate research enquiries, manage documentation, continue to input data into MODES, work with volunteers, assist with displays and undertake collections care with the Director. The archive and collection cover:
• Items relating the story of national rural and factory cider making (making, drinking and promoting) from the 17th century to the present – this makes up the majority and includes pub ephemera and some overseas materials
• business archives
• orcharding and fruit research
• photographic collection
• oral histories
• 18th century fine glass collection
• 17th to 21st century publications and some art.
Based in an original 1890s cider factory in Hereford, you will find that cider history is still being made and we are still collecting. A positive personal manner with the public is essential.

Pay: £12-14 per hour (£14,040-16,380 per annum), dependent on experience (to be ascertained through the application and interview)
