SENIOR LEADERSHIP | REPORT TO THE CEO | COMPETITIVE SALARY PACKAGE
Live in beautiful Ballarat! Just over an hour from Melbourne, Ballarat is an exciting regional hub with a proud
heritage and an exciting creative future.

The Sovereign Hill Museums Association is one of Australia’s leading independent not-for-profit museums.
Our diverse business is driven by the passion and purpose of all who work for us as they create the visitor
experience that makes Sovereign Hill an internationally-renowned, award-winning cultural tourism organisation.
(Our business structure includes the following key operations: Sovereign Hill Outdoor Museum, the Gold Museum
Ballarat, Sovereign Hill Hotel, AURA – the newly-launched evening sound-and-light show – and Narmbool, a
pastoral property where we operate environmental science programs for school camps and a function venue.)

On the cusp of its 50th Anniversary, Sovereign Hill receives over 750,000 visits annually and is about to invest
in a master plan to lead our organisation forward. If you are resourceful, ideas-driven, collaborative in nature and
driven by a desire to contribute, you will be attracted by the opportunity to join us in this exciting new phase of
our development.

DIRECTOR – COLLECTIONS, RESEARCH AND LEARNING

As a forward-thinking museum professional, you will oversee the management of a collection exceeding 150,000
objects, ensure exhibition and display development is underpinned by interpretation plans, lead curatorial and
research projects and drive the development and delivery of engaging learning programs across three unique
locations – Sovereign Hill, Gold Museum and Narmbool.

With excellent people skills, a track record for innovation, a strong sector network and a reputation for effective
stakeholder engagement, you will ensure the organisation’s engagement with the public is underpinned by
credible research and interpretation of the Victorian gold rush era and that content presented is suitable for a
range of audiences.
