We are happy to report that we have a new member of staff – Christina, our new Communications Assistant. Here she tells us about her new role and what she gets up to:
‘As communications assistant I get the fantastic job of letting everybody know what is going on within the museum via social media and other marketing.
I greatly enjoy it as I love talking about museums, whether that be current exhibitions, upcoming events or the treasures that can be found in the collections. I’ve already had a great time learning more about the objects currently on display in ‘Bright Ideas’ and can’t wait to get into the collections to find more stories to tell.
I am also really excited to get the chance to help with some of the events that take place in the museums, including next year’s Night at the Museums, which is always great fun.
It’s great to be involved in the museum and get the chance to learn more about all the museums in the University – I did not realise that we had so many exhibitions on display! I recently completed my MLitt Museum Studies at the University of Aberdeen so the transition from student to staff has been a little strange but I am really excited to be working with everyone in this new role, it’s a great team.’
