West Midlands Police – Project Brief for Heritage Interpretation Consultant

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Heritage Interpretation Professional to join the West Midlands Police Heritage Project’s Design Team to plan the relocation of the police museum to the Lock-up in Birmingham City Centre.

We are looking to tell the story of 200 years of policing across the West Midlands (ensuring all areas are included, not just Birmingham) through items of police memorabilia, old kit and equipment, tales of heroism and bravery, the changing role of the police and finishing with some really important current messages about policing. And there might be room for a Peaky Blinders display.

The project is currently midway through a Heritage Lottery Grant application, having been successful at Round 1 and now working on the Round 2 bid.

£10,000 of HLF development funding is allocated for this work with a view to submitting a draft proposal to HLF in December 2018 and the Round 2 application in March 2019.

Please click here to download a copy of the full brief.

We are asking for expressions of interest to include:

  • Fee proposal
  • Daily rate and other expenses
  • Methodology, work plan and outputs
  • Previous HLF experience and other relevant experience

These will need to be sent to C.Brazier@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk by 9:00am Monday 13th August.

Applications will be shortlisted during that week with chosen candidates being invited to view some of the collection at the Sparkhill site on the 23rd August and visit the Lock-up on the 30th August. Both these visits will provide the opportunity to discuss the project with the project team before the chosen candidate is selected, with a view to starting at the beginning of September.
