Proposta de trabalho (em Bradford, UK)
Não pretendo publicar aqui anúncios “avulso” que surgem pelo mundo relacionados com o mundo dos videojogos, gosto de ir observando e analisando as propostas que vão sendo publicas e sobre empresas portuguesas ou então que estão com escritórios em Portugal.
Mas este é diferente, achei a proposta de trabalho muito interessante:
Do you have a broad knowledge of gaming and gaming history or culture? Do you have experience of communicating history and STEM topics to non-specialist audiences?
Collectively gaming development and gaming technologies are the UK’s largest creative industry. The Science Museum Group (SMG) is developing a group-wide public programme to celebrate gaming and gaming culture and wants to fully explore how this media can help engage our visitors and non-visitors with STEM.
To help lead this work, we are now recruiting for a Curator of Game Technologies to be based at our National Science & Media Museum (NSMM) in Bradford (but with some travel to other sites). In this role, you will play a critical role in the development and support of the season of gaming across SMG, including group-wide exhibitions on gaming, events and programming including on site and digital elements, between 2023 and 2024, whilst also leading on collections research and development in this emergent area helping SMG to understand how this area fits strategically within the group. As Curator of Game Technologies you will work with colleagues across SMG to explore the history, development and use of gaming technologies. This role will explore how SMG defines and collects in this area and will seek to engage visitors through our collections, public exhibition programme, festivals and events.
Joining us, you will have broad knowledge of gaming and gaming history/culture. You will hold strong research skills; you’ll be able to find interesting stories related to our collection and will be able to communicate these to non-specialist audiences through exhibitions, articles, blogs, outreach or teaching. You’ll be able to bring stakeholders together and lead collaborative working and will be proactive and organised in your approach to work.
The Science Museum Group (SMG) is here to inspire futures. As the world’s leading group of science museums, we share our unparalleled collection spanning science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine with over five million visitors each year. Joining us as an employee, you will have the opportunity to develop your career in a world-class museum group. We know work/life balance and wellbeing is crucial to our colleagues, so we currently offer up to 25 days annual leave in addition to bank holidays; BUPA medical and dental care; employee assistance programme; enhanced contributory pension; enhanced occupational sick, maternity, paternity and adoption leave and career breaks.
‘Open for All’ is one of the Science Museum Group’s five core values and sets out our important aspiration to be a place for everyone. As a national museum group, we have an ability to reach a wide and diverse population of audiences, colleagues and partners through our geography and scale.
We are working hard to understand our organisation better and to foster a culture that recognises and values different backgrounds, mindsets, skills, experience, knowledge and expertise. By having greater diversity, we believe that we will be a stronger and better organisation and ultimately will be able to inspire more futures. We therefore welcome applications from those who bring difference.”
