Sherborne Museum seeks to represent the rich heritage of the town and the key events that shaped its history and development over the years. It plays an important role in the local community, with a lively programme of events and a developing education service. Exciting plans for the future include a rebranding of the Museum’s image, a review of our membership benefits and ultimately a full professional redesign of the exhibitions in order to fully tell the story of the town while making the most of our wonderful collections.

The Museum is managed by the Sherborne Museum Association, an independent charitable trust, its activities supported by a dedicated team of volunteers and a thriving membership.

Following a recent governance review the Trust has decided to transfer management of the Museum from the Association to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).

We are seeking to appoint a Treasurer for the newly formed Sherborne Museum to oversee the financial affairs of the organisation, ensuring proper compliance at all times. The Treasurer will also undertake book-keeping duties and process payments.

The role of Treasurer is vitally important to the smooth running of the organisation and will provide a rewarding opportunity to use your expertise and experience to help us develop Sherborne Museum.
