Job Vacancies – Epworth Old Rectory

Epworth Old Rectory is the former home of the Wesley family, the founders of the worldwide Methodist movement. It offers inspiration and learning for all people, with particular significance for Christians as a place of pilgrimage. As an Accredited museum, it tells the story of Susanna Wesley and her family and their influence on faith and social justice movements throughout the world, with an emphasis on historic and contemporary women’s perspectives, holding a unique collection relating to Methodist women. In response to the challenges of the pandemic we are seeking to broaden our range of audiences, offering transformative and inclusive visitor experiences (both physical and virtual) and ensuring that this beautiful Grade I Listed building can meet the needs of 21st century visitors.
