There are very few museums that are as bold and ambitious as the Museum of London. We want to be even better and more successful than ever, reflecting the dynamic and constantly changing city whose story we tell. Our passion and commitment to educating the world about London’s past and present is absolute and we are proud to contribute to the city’s international, educational, cultural and economic impetus. It is an exciting time in our own history as we plan for our move to a new home in West Smithfield.

You will be responsible for the development and implementation of HR strategy to ensure that the museum achieves its plans, including those related to shaping our organisation for our future move.

Like London itself, our ambitions are bold and we are looking for a Head of HR who will grasp the many opportunities presented by our current growth. A holder of a post-graduate qualification in HR and a Chartered member of the CIPD, you will have experience in successfully managing a HR function.
