Nestled in the beautiful village of Hutton-le-Hole, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, Ryedale Folk Museum offers a unique glimpse of the past. For half a century we’ve conserved some of Ryedale’s most magnificent heritage for future generations to enjoy. Our atmospheric buildings and collections, spread over six acres, tell a story about a rural way of life from the Iron Age to the 1950s. The Museum also features a gift shop and art gallery.
The successful candidate will be employed to provide a welcoming experience for visitors through the efficient handling of admissions and shop sales and maintain our excellent standards of customer service. The postholder will undertake work which supports the running of the Museum’s gift shop and basic administrative duties.
