Fair Museum Jobs [Manifesto for job adverts and recruitment, recruitment checklists, and recruitment-related resources]

“Fair Museum Jobs is a grassroots, collective movement. Our objective is to establish a better standard (“The Manifesto”) for museum job recruitment that is based on the principles of fairness, transparency, equity and inclusivity. We believe recruitment based on these principles is fundamental to creating a museum sector that is resilient, relevant and representative of all society.


Fair Museum Jobs will take collective action to urge employers to improve their recruitment practices when they fall short of the established standard. We will also celebrate best practice, and champion examples as models for emulation.


Our focus will be on the museums, heritage, cultural and allied sectors. However, we welcome interest and support from all quarters. Our movement is, like we aspire our sector workforce to be, open to everyone.”
