Scottish Museums Federation Events


We run a series of ‘pop-up’ events to encourage networking and information sharing between colleagues in the Scottish museums sector. These take a variety of formats such as exhibition openings, specialist subject talks, training and evening events.


If you’re interested in hosting a pop-up of your own, please get in touch with us by emailing us.

Successful Selection


The landscape for jobs and volunteering opportunities in the museums and galleries sector is very competitive. Anything you can do to stand out from the crowd can make all of the difference - but what does that look like?


This interactive workshop will provide a masterclass in CV development; whether you are a student at pre-entry, early career; someone transferring into the sector, ex-freelancers; or someone with a portfolio career.


We will share hints and tips for effective interviews, as well as exploring other selection techniques and how to nail them.


As part of the workshop we will focus on 'gaps' and we will discuss what you may need to develop and how to do so to be able to meet the requirements for both short-listing and successful appointment.


This workshop will have relevance for anyone working, volunteering or thinking about joining the sector.  Existing Scottish Museum Federation Members, Museums Association Members welcome as is anyone with an interest in the museums and galleries sector.  Why not book on and begin your next career chapter.


Delivered by the Museums Association and organised in partnership with the Scottish Museums Federation.
