Jo Howarth

Museum Assistant

I am part of a team of Museum Assistants and I work a job share at both the Art Gallery and the Maritime Museum. My role is as enjoyable as it is wide ranging. I welcome visitors at reception, deal with deliveries, phone calls and general enquires from the members of the public. Behind the scenes I help prepare rooms for opening, assist with moving artworks for loans, restoration or storage and deal with security issues and general wellbeing of our visitors. Museum Assistants are the public face of the Gallery and Museums and aim to give people an open, responsive and positive experience.
