New recruits are being taken on at Haworth’s Bronte Parsonage Museum.

The parsonage, which underwent major improvements during its closed season, is seeking retail and museum managers.

The retail manager, a post that carries a salary of £18,000 to £20,000, will be responsible for running the newly extended gift shop.

Two museum manager posts are being advertised, for the front-of-house operation. Their remit will be to enhance the visitor experience.

A museum spokesman said: “Our admissions area has been reconfigured and, at the same time, the shop was expanded.

“The job descriptions take into account the changes to the visitor experience and the route through the museum.”

Following the work during the winter, visitors can now buy tickets at the desk in the foyer and are no longer exposed to the elements if they have to queue.

The closed season also saw preparations carried out for the 2014 exhibition, The Brontes and Animals, as well as extensive maintenance work.
