The Natural History Museum (NHM) is a world-class visitor attraction, leading science research centre and commercial event space. 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.

Our vision is a future where both people and planet thrive; our mission is to create advocates for the planet. In a time of unprecedented environmental change, this mission has never been more relevant or urgent.

We strive to reconnect people with nature, and use our science and public programming to inform the debate on human-induced planetary impact, change and action.

We are at a pivotal moment in our history as we will soon 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 the 150 anniversary of the opening of the Waterhouse Building in 2031, making this a truly exciting time to be part of the NHM team.

About you

We are also very open to background and transferable skills from the business or agency sector, especially within new business development.

You will have strong organisational skills with an ability to set priorities, manage a prospect pipeline and meet deadlines. You will also bring drive, ambition and creativity to a collaborative and team-orientated environment, as well as the ability to frame propositions to deliver mutual benefits for both the Museum and prospective partners.
