Maintaining and developing financial viability presents a real challenge for many heritage organisations.  A project developed by Museum Development Officers in the West of England is enabling 6 independent Accredited museums to take stock and focus on this aspect of their organisation so that they can work towards being in the best place to face the challenges of a changing economic climate.

This consortium is seeking a suitably qualified and experienced freelance consultant(s)* with considerable knowledge and expertise of current financial and economic sustainability in relation to cultural sector organisations.

*Whilst these are offered as separate contracts of work with each museum, consultants are welcome to submit multiple tenders as appropriate.
