About The Natural History Museum
The Natural History Museum (NHM) is a world-class visitor attraction and leading science research centre. We use our unique collections and unrivalled expertise to tackle the biggest challenges facing the world today. We care for more than 80 million specimens, both in our London and Tring museums , spanning billions of years and welcome more than five million visitors annually.
The Waterhouse Building at our South Kensington site, often described as a cathedral to nature, is one of Britain’s most striking examples of Romanesque architecture and one of London’s most iconic landmarks. We plan to maximise the potential of this site and our beautiful museum in Tring.
We are at a pivotal moment in our history as we seek to appoint a Head of Legal which is a newly created role. In the summer we will launch a new strategy setting out our role as the natural world faces increasing threats. Building on our world-leading collection , global reputation for science and as one of the world’s leading visitor attractions, the NHM has ambitious plans leading up to its 150th anniversary in 2031 making this a truly exciting time to be part of the NHM team.
