Closes 18 Feb 2018
Since opening last year, The Postal Museum has received great acclaim as London’s newest museum and heritage attraction and is home to an impressive array of interactive galleries, an immersive subterranean rail ride, MailRail, as well as offering modern research facilities and a wide-range of learning activities to the community. 2017 was a momentous year for us, and represented the culmination of many years’ hard work and dedication on the part of all the staff.
As an ambitious, forward-thinking organisation with a truly amazing story to tell, this is an incredibly exciting opportunity to join as our chief executive. You will be instrumental in leading the organisation and ensuring our long-term financial sustainability as well as putting us firmly on the map within a vibrant and competitive museums sector.
This is an exceptional role for an experienced, empowering and visionary leader with a track record in managing organisational and cultural change. You will be adept at managing people with sensitivity and will be able to communicate our vision and mission to an energetic and committed staff. You will be commercially astute and understand the commercial realities of running a paid-for visitor experience and will bring the experience and drive to maximise on the outstanding opportunities that exist within this unique organisation.
As well as proven senior, strategic leadership experience you will bring outstanding communication skills and will represent us at the highest levels with our external stakeholders, interest groups and the wider public. You will bring strong personal credibility within the museums or heritage sector, and it goes without saying that you will combine both the passion and ambition to establish us as the leading authority on postal heritage and of illustrating the deep impact it has had on society over the past 500 years.
