Now Hiring : Education & Outreach Manager 

We’re recruiting! We’re looking for a committed and talented person to manage the bookings and development of our education programme.  Up to 35 hours but strong candidates who require some flexibility or want to work Part Time (minimum 21 hours preferably in our core hours of 9.30 to 2.30) will be considered.  For an informal discussion please email [email protected]


The Royal Gunpowder Mills at Waltham Abbey (RGM) welcomes mostly KS1 and KS2 students to its historic site for unique day programmes to learn history and nature. The aim of the Education and Outreach Manager is to increase and mange school bookings and work closely with the Education Team to organise teachers and materials, and develop new programmes for the site and instigate outreach activities. This varied role will include improving data capture, analysis, develop marketing, and research ideas and test viability of new programmes.  

Although the core of the role is Education, the role also encompasses leisure learning for all ages, across topics, with some activities to be delivered as part of an public event, or stand-alone programmes such as Study Days. Candidates must be self-starters with a passion for ‘passing it on’, a liking of establishing new markets, good at making connections and creating partnerships with organisations in all sectors.  And a fantastic team worker, supportive of staff colleagues and volunteers. 

Previous work in a professional Education role is essential.  Previous experience of roles in heritage sites, visitor attractions is a plus.  Knowledge of history, nature or science is desirable and willingness to develop knowledge of these areas is essential.

The role will also involve some work at evenings or weekends in support of our activities.
