Project Brief: Detailed Interpretation & Learning Plan and outline Interpretive Master Plan

Port Sunlight Village Trust wishes to commission an experienced museum and heritage professional to produce a detailed Interpretation & Learning Plan for a new permanent gallery called ‘Soap & Water’, and an outline Interpretative Master Plan for Port Sunlight Museum.

We are keen for work to start as soon as possible in February 2019 and envisage that it will conclude by September 2019. The budget is €10,000 + VAT (approximately £9,000 + VAT).

The work is being funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Interreg Atlantic Area Project, an initiative designed to address the loss of identity of the coastal towns of the Atlantic Area. The Liverpool City Region is one of nine European partners, with the Liverpool Local Enterprise Partnership acting as the local delivery partner on behalf of The Albert Dock, Sefton Council, and Port Sunlight Village Trust.

Volunteer Role 

Our staff and volunteers are integral to the success of the village.

Port Sunlight could not function as we do without the invaluable support of our volunteers. Volunteers themselves also gain a lot from their work at the Trust: they develop new skills, make new friends and get to contribute to their local community. Volunteer roles include:

• Meeting and greeting visitors at our Edwardian worker’s cottage.
• Meeting and greeting visitors at Port Sunlight Museum
• Helping out at special events, e.g. lectures, village trails, shows and road races.
• Carrying out historical and collections-based research.
• Caring for our collections.
• Leading learning sessions with schools and other visitors
• Surveying our buildings
• Helping to maintain our bedding displays

Our commitment to supporting and developing our volunteers is outlined in our Volunteer agreement form.

We are currently not recruiting any volunteers at the moment, please check back again soon to see available opportunities.
