The Devon and Exeter Institution is a thriving independent historic library and educational charity in the heart of the city.  Our purpose is to Preserve and Educate and we welcome new members and visitors of all ages.  Our founders established the Institution in 1813, in order to promote ‘the general diffusion of Science, Literature and the Arts’ and this resolution remains at the centre of our cause to this day.

We offer:

  • A beautiful historic working environment
  • Museums Association approved salary scale
  • 33 days pro rata annual leave  – plus two week office closure over Christmas and New Year
