Freelance researcher

Available budget: £20,000

Fulham Palace Trust is inviting consultant freelance researchers to submit proposals to identify the evidenced stories that we should be sharing with our visitors on the theme of the Bishop of London, colonialism and transatlantic slavery.

This research project, funded by Arts Council England, will address, where feasible, identified gaps in our Conservation Plan, sources lists completed in 2016 and interpretation framework to identify, document and make accessible material to support this theme. It will include providing advice on any workstreams that could be pursued by our volunteer Archive Research Group.

Responding to the brief
To respond to this brief, the consultant freelance researcher should provide Fulham Palace with:

·         A short methodology statement explaining how the research brief will be delivered within the June – October timescale (please specify your availability if you are not available within this period). This should include an anticipated timetable of activities and key dates.

·         CV and details of relevant professional experience and skills. Demonstrating any experience of similar projects would be desirable.

·         Two references from clients of similar work.

·         The extent of professional insurance or indemnity cover.

Responses of no more than six pages of A4 should be emailed to Lisa Voden-Decker at curator@fulhampalace.org by noon on Friday 25 June.

A shortlisting process will be undertaken and interviews will be held on Wednesday 30th June (either remotely or at Fulham Palace). Consultants are kindly requested to keep this day free for that purpose.

We also have a range of volunteer opportunities available. Find out more about volunteering.
