The Jewish Museum tripled in size following an extension of its premises in Camden. Following a £10m investment, they created not just an enlarged home for its internationally acclaimed collections, but also an inspirational place for people to explore Jewish culture, heritage and identity. Engaging with people of all ages, backgrounds and faiths the new galleries bring collections to life by placing the Jewish story into the wider context of British history.
I was involved with the Museum for around three years. Initially, I helped the Board and senior management team take stock of progress on their capital project and update their project plan.
I also helped re-shape the existing volunteer programme to ensure that the new museum opened with a majority volunteer-run front-of-house team.
Post-opening, I conducted reviews of operations, staff and management structures, as well as advising on governance.
