“Rolling up their sleeves to get things done” is how Hampshire Cultural Trust describes the work ethic of its team of over 200 staff and around 300 volunteers.

The charity, established in 2014, aims to promote Hampshire as a county that offers outstanding cultural experiences to its residents and visitors.

From museums and galleries to arts centres and more, Hampshire Cultural Trust manages and supports 23 attractions across the county.

Part of its work includes running a huge variety of workshops, classes, events, and projects for both young and old, in schools and communities, with particular emphasis on reaching people who are vulnerable or disadvantaged and would not normally be able to access arts and culture. In addition, the charity cares for some 2.5 million objects that relate to Hampshire’s rich and internationally important cultural heritage.

Such meaningful work that makes a positive difference in people’s lives calls for dedicated employees. Hampshire Cultural Trust says its people are creative, resilient, adaptable, and open to change, and have a people-centric mindset, allowing them to be kind, supportive, caring, and willing to share knowledge and help each other succeed.

The organisation has regular dialogue with employees, thanks to team meetings, one-to-ones, and its employee forum. Following feedback given by staff in its engagement survey, a Climate Action Policy and Strategy has been introduced, work on a new organisation framework started, and increased communications around financial performance and job security implemented.
