Job vacancies

Current vacancies

2019 is a very exciting year for The Story Museum. Major redevelopment work is now underway to create a total of 10 gallery and activity spaces that will bring the whole Museum into full use, enabling us to welcome many more visitors and to provide a home for our collection of 1001 of the world’s greatest stories. Alongside this capital redevelopment supported by Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are also embarked on the planned expansion of our staff team in preparation for our reopening in Spring 2020 and will be posting vacancies here as they arise.

Website Designer Tender

The Story Museum is inviting proposals from web designers to redesign and redevelop its website.

The majority of our gallery and exhibitions spaces are currently closed as we undergo an exciting period of redevelopment and building work that will transform The Story Museum, however we are still running events both on site and across Oxfordshire. The reopening of the building in 2020 represents an important opportunity for us to review our online presence and how we can utilise this to raise our profile, communicate our offer and increase visitor numbers.
