Network with other professionals and learn how to get ahead at MA event
The Museums Association (MA) is running a special one-day conference next year aimed at museum professionals in the first five years of their career.

Moving on up: The secrets of a successful museum career will take place on 6 February 2014 at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester (Mosi).

Attendees will have a valuable opportunity to network with peers and senior museum professionals, discuss the challenges of the current jobs market, learn new skills and build on their professional development.

The event aims to help people increase their confidence, meet new contacts and find out about innovative and creative ways of getting ahead rather than just relying on traditional career paths.

The day will include a variety of session types, from inspirational keynote speakers to practical roundtable discussions and workshops, as well as numerous opportunities to network with colleagues.

The MA's marketing officer, Zoe Spencer, said: “This one-day conference is a great opportunity for those in the early years of their career to get a real boost.

"Not only will they network with peers and hear from inspirational speakers, but through a series of practical sessions they will find out the secrets to a successful museum career.

"If you want to build your confidence, as well as your contacts and ideas, as you look to move on up in your career, then this event is for you."

Full details of the timetable and speakers will be released in due course.

Online booking for the event is now open. Places are limited so be sure to book early.
