Multaka Community Outreach and Learning Facilitator

History of Science Museum, Broad Street, Oxford, OX1 3AZ

Would you like to join a team that brings people from all over the world together to develop intercultural learning and understanding?

About the role

This is an exciting opportunity to work in the multi-award winning MultakaOxford programme (Multaka means ‘meeting point' in Arabic) as the Community Outreach and Engagement facilitator at the History of Science Museum. MultakaOxford is part of the journey of how communities and museums can work more closely together, bringing people, communities and objects together to strengthen understanding and celebrate our cultures, history and identity by including more voices and experiences.

The Community Outreach and Engagement facilitator will work with people, the museum collections and partners across Oxfordshire to plan and programme events, workshops, outreach sessions and displays. The programme welcomes everyone and provides structured support for people who may have settled/are settling in Oxford as a refugee or asylum seeker. This role will support the partnerships and the people involved in the project and develop activities within the museum and across Oxfordshire's community.

This role will be based at the History of Science Museum and supported by the Project Manager, the Multaka staff team and wider museum staff.

It is offered as part-time (working 3 days a week), fixed-term until February 2026.

For any questions about the role, please contact Nicola Bird ([email protected]).

About You

You must have demonstrable experience of working with inter-cultural groups, including people who are settling in the UK as refugees, asylum seekers, and forced migrants.

Experience of working on projects and supporting the planning, delivering and evaluation of collaborative projects is essential so that they are welcoming, accessible, and inclusive.

It would be beneficial if you have knowledge and experience of working within Oxford's communities and can demonstrate a clear understanding of the role of community engagement in museums.
