The Story Museum in Oxford is currently undergoing a major redevelopment capital project. As we prepare to launch the transformed Story Museum, we are expanding all levels of the organisation including the Board to ensure we take full flight in 2020.
The Chipping Norton Theatre is a restlessly busy and ambitious theatre and arts centre in the Cotswolds. Welcoming over 50,000 people every year in a town of little over 6,000, The Theatre delivers a year-round programme of theatre, comedy, music, film and participatory activities for audiences across the region. More recently, we have grown as a producing house, creating three major productions each year and growing a stronger and more loyal audience as a result.
For the past three years the Cowley Road Carnival has grown in size and quality as it has attracted multiple large Arts Council England ‘Project Grants’ awards to support it’s creative work and has ex-panded it’s reach, now involving a diverse array of community groups, schools, charities and per-formers to put on ‘Oxford’s Big Day Out’, as well as at other cultural events throughout the Oxford-shire arts calendar.
Volunteers are crucial to the success of the Cowley Road Carnival. This role puts you at the heart of the Carnival. You will be recruiting, training and managing our team of over 100 volunteers, playing a vital part in the organisation and success of the event.

The Story Museum highlights the human need for stories and celebrates the many ways people benefit from engaging with great stories and creating stories of their own. We are looking for an experienced Learning Officer to support the Head of Learning and Participation to deliver our inspiring story-based learning sessions both inside and outside the building. The role involves the delivery of both formal and informal learning sessions to audiences of all ages and providing administrative and creative support to the Learning Department.
We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to work alongside our Communications Manager (Press & PR) in helping to create and deliver the Museum’s marketing strategies to increase our reach to new audiences in line with our Audience Development Plan and to meet ticket income targets.
We are looking for a keen intern with a passion for reading to help the Learning and Participation team to deliver our Extreme Reading Adventures programme. Extreme Reading is a very successful project aimed at children who have been identified as ‘reluctant readers’. Over six weekly sessions the children explore six books, each with a related ‘activity’ adventure to help them make emotional connections with reading, stimulate their desire to read and encourage them to start reading for pleasure, thereby improving their literacy skills.
Do you like stories? Are you interested in history? Are you full of enthusiasm and ideas? We are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic intern to help the Exhibitions and Collections team research our Story Collections and assist with content development for the new gallery displays.
The New Theatre Oxford is looking for an experienced and inspirational Marketing Manager who will lead on the marketing functions to drive ticket sales and revenue for the venue.
