Do you want to work at one of Scotland’s biggest cultural heritage projects? Can you successfully manage a large-scale exhibition install? We’re looking for someone to help deliver the object installation at Paisley Museum ahead of it’s reopening in 2024.

About the Project

Paisley Museum Re-Imagined is a £45 million refurbishment project that will create a radical, world-class museum space to preserve and celebrate the town’s history and international impact. Working with architects AL_A, and exhibition designers OPERA Amsterdam, the museum will deliver an accessible, inclusive, and co-produced experience for visitors and communities. Reopening in 2024, it will showcase over 100 new displays containing over 1,200 objects from a range of disciplines such as Fine Art, Natural History, Science, Social History, World Cultures, and Textiles, including its Recognised Collection of Paisley shawls.

About the Role

As Install Co-ordinator, you will develop and deliver an object installation programme for over 1,200 objects planned for display, including large and complex items such as intricate weaving equipment and machinery, bulky taxidermy, and large artworks. You’ll play a key role in scheduling and overseeing object movement at and between OneRen sites, and co-ordinating object deliveries from external partners and contractors such as lenders and conservation studios.

Working closely with the Project Manager and Collections and Conservation Manager the post holder will programme the object installation period in co-ordination with the wider project programme. You’ll organise work plans and schedules for multiple teams working concurrently on installation of different displays, composed of OneRen staff and external contractors such as mount makers and art handlers.

The Install Co-ordinator will help deliver the final stages of the Paisley Museum Re-Imagined project on time, and an understanding of the complexities in packing, moving, and handling cultural heritage objects and artworks is essential. The role requires a keen attention to detail, a methodical approach to working and a strong set of problem-solving skills.
