Nestled in the beautiful village of Hutton-le-Hole, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, Ryedale Folk Museum offers a unique glimpse of the past. For half a century we’ve conserved some of Ryedale’s most magnificent heritage for future generations to enjoy. Our atmospheric buildings and collections, spread over six acres, tell a story about a rural way of life from the Iron Age to the 1950s. The museum also features a gift shop and art gallery.
The successful candidate will be employed to assist another Museum staff member at the weekends to provide a first-class visitor experience, maintain excellent standards of service, optimise opportunities to generate income and ensure that the site is safe and secure.
HOURS: Working every other weekend, from 9.30am – 4.30pm (Feb, Mar, Oct, Nov) and 9.30am – 5.30pm (Apr – Sep). Additional hours may be offered to cover gaps in weekend and weekday staffing provision.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the responsibilities required of the candidate, Ryedale Folk Museum is only inviting applications from persons aged 18 years or older. Due to the site location, candidates must be able to arrange transport to and from the Museum – public transport is not available.
