What just happened?

To celebrate Vikings Live, we have replaced our Roman alphabet with the runic alphabet used by the Vikings, the Scandinavian ‘Younger Futhark’. The ‘Younger Futhark’ has only 16 letters, so we have used some of the runic letters more than once or combined two runes for one Roman letter.

For an excellent introduction to runes, we recommend Martin Findell’s book published by British Museum Press.

Government transparency agenda

As part of the UK government commitment to transparency the British Museum is making available information about its structure, pay
and expenditure.

Grading structure and pay ranges

The Museum has a job family pay structure. Members of staff are allocated to pay spines within each job family according to their responsibilities and competencies.

Job families

Each of the five families is made of a number of clusters, level 1 being the most junior.

  • Collections:
    C1 – C2 – C3 – C4 – C5
  • Service Delivery:
    SD1 – SD2 – SD3
  • Resources Functions:
    R1 – R2 – R3 – R4 – R5
  • Supervisory & Management:
    M1 – M2 – M3 – M4
  • Support:
    S1 – S2 – S3 – S4
