The RAF Museum is looking for an experienced and credible Head of IT to join our highly successful Museum.

You will be joining us during a period of significant change, in the lead up to our funded RAF Centenary celebrations and commemorations in 2018. Central to these RAF Centenary activities will be the role IT performs within the corporate body of the Museum. 

The successful candidate will manage a small IT team across two sites (London and Cosford) and will need to demonstrate experience of successfully implementing IT strategy, that takes account of the current funding climate within UK based heritage organisations.
