Fire!, from photography to archaeology - the possibilities are endless.  And with the museum's planned move to West Smithfield, there has never been a more exciting time to work here.

The successful candidate will have experience of managing exhibition projects from concept development through to opening within a museum or gallery context.  You will need to have an excellent understanding of how to ensure an exhibition offers memorable visitor experiences as well as enhancing the museum's reputation, building its audiences and generating income.  Creativity, strong organisational, analytical and problem-solving skills, and the ability to work under pressure are critical.  Also essential are excellent communication skills and the ability to lead and work as part of a team, as well as experience of procuring and managing design and production services.  A passion for London is a given for all members of the Museum of London team.
