The Historic Royal Palaces in the UK are hiring a Curator of Inclusive History. This news comes only a few weeks after the HRP announced it was shedding 145 jobs across their sites.

As their job advert explains:

As the custodians of nationally significant sites, we cannot ignore the fact that for hundreds of years colonialism and empire, enslavement and exploitation were part of our national story but have allowed much of this story, and the stories of people of different race and ethnicity to go untold.

Our aim is to give the palaces a future as bright as their past and to create unique and memorable experiences for everyone. In order to undertake this work, we need help and so are seeking a new Curator for Inclusive Histories, directly focused on introducing inclusive perspectives into all our research. The new curator will lead this, but it will be the responsibility of our entire research team to deliver it. This research will inform the experiences that we create at our sites. In future, it will provide the content for our exhibitions, programming, publications and digital activity.

This 4 day a week role comes with a salary of £38,978 and applications must be in by 1st November 2020.

Good luck if you're applying!
